Hi guys, first thread here. i have been passive reader since 2014.
I've been searching around about this and can not get the answer so I think i'll ask here.

My current build are pretty much copy of tonymacx86's Haswell mATX >> HERE << but my board are Z87M-D3H.
Its smooth with little to no trouble from 10.8 to 10.13 ( I plan to update to 10.14/Mojave)

Im planning to upgrade the board to z97 chipset to get native support of NVME.
I still can get gigabyte z97x Gaming 3 / 5 or z97x UD3H Black Edition, which one do you think i should get?
Not sure if the board will work as smooth as my current board. what is your advice with this?.

there is work around with hacked bios to get older chipset to boot from NVME,
but my board only has 2 PCIe and both of them
are populated with GPU & Wifi/BT card.
Beside i can not get z87x board anywhere anymore (I live in southeast asia).

your advice greatly appreciated...

cheers :)
