If you don't mind not having the latest tech, I say go for the Z87. I'm not concerned that much about having the latest tech as long my needs are satisfied. The only reason I upgrade from Sandy Bridge to Kabylake was because I got an awesome deal for the mobo & cpu & still have an upgrade path. With that Z87 ASRock you're considering, you can use all 4 pcie slots for crossfire only but it will be a pcie 3.0 for (3) slots while the 4th slot will be pcie 2.0. If you know that the Z87 performance will satisfy you at the end of the day, I say forget what people think, save some cash & buy it OR you can wait longer until you find a deal with the Z1270 or Z270 mobo & cpu.
