So based on a relatively small form factor (Micro ATX) we receive a motherboard that has been chucked full with features like Killer LAN and Audio Boost. The MSI Z87M Gaming has a multi-phase-phase digital VRM with cooling, two full PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot, 24-pin and 8-pin power connectors, four full-size DDR3 DIMM memory slots and even 8-channel audio. Another advantage is that the Z87M has proper overclocking support.
