Default Ivy Bridge recommendation - Size limited

Can anyone recommend a IB board with 305 x 210mm as max limit? My friend also need it to have Intel onboard RAID so he can migrate the current RAID5. He prefers Gigabyte but open to suggestions (I know some of you don't like Giga). I suspect he may try overclock it a bit.

Oh I pointed out that board to my friend as well. To be honest if he got a hard size limit like that he should of gone mATX, which I also suggested.
