"In terms of performance, the H67 boards are going to offer a performance envelope that is almost identical from board to board when you have the same components installed.

In terms of price, the ECS Black Series H67H2-M comes in at the upper end of the pricing spectrum at $139. Not the highest price I have seen for an H67 board but at the upper end.
