Thoughts on this?

I'm about to buy a 4690k and need a motherboard for some midiuem OC

This is what found:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00KDKUFAM?redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i2


It has a crazy 6 PWM headers, 8 stage power and m.2 slot.

Anything else anyone would recommend over this?

Got a budget of £140 max, this is only £100 and has more features than I can ever dream to use.

Looks good to me. Hard to go wrong with Asus or Gigabyte motherboards with the OC'ing chipsets. Two features missing which I like to have... CMOS reset on the back I/O and a debug l.e.d. on the motherboard. But for the price you can't argue with it.

The only Asus Z97 board that don't use a gold color heatsink, the AR has more of a silver metallic. Looks like a great board.
