So you're looking to build an entry level Sandy Bridge computer; which H67 board will win?

Doubt it, I think the H67 motherboards are aimed at people that don't know or want to overclock, so they will purchase the non "K" CPUs.

I like the look of these (not just these two) for building pcs for other people.

The price may massage, but it all looks nice and handy to me.

A bit pricey imo for a board that is not going to appeal to basically the majority of the people with some knowledge of PC's apart from maybe people whom make/build PC's for customers. But still if I was building a computer for a simpleton whom only wanted to use it for internet/emails etc I would go with a cheaper board.

Edit*

Although saying that supporting GPU for a internet/email and some simple games user could completely eliminate the need to buy a graphics card which would save an extra £100ish but does it add up? £50 Mobo, £70 CPU & £80 GPU or £120 Mobo, £150 CPU £200 vs £270 for a everyday pc Ofcourse the sandybridge option will run smoother but is it worth the extra £70 :x!

This review lists your test setup as using Mushkin Redline DDR3 @ 1333MHz but it looks like Mushkin Redline DDR3 is rated for 1600MHz. Is it possible to run the RAM at 1600MHz (or higher) on these boards? From what I have read, the H67 chipset can allow memory OCs but I haven't been able to tell if any of the mobo makers have allowed it yet.
