Arrow Asus or Gigabyte

A friend wants to build a new computer for Photoshop/Lightroom use now and then down the road video editing using Win7 x64. I narrowed down the mb memory and CPU to these two:

P8Z77-V PRO w i5-3570K and Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit (4 x 4GB) CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9


GA-Z77X-UD3H w i5-3570K and Corsair Vengeance 16GB PC3-14900 DDR3 Quad Channel Kit (4 x 4GB) CMZ16GX3M4X1866C9R

I have seen people post in another forum that the P8Z77-Pro was having problems with memory generating error 55s whereas the Gigabyte board seems to have problems with VIA USB3 drivers not working properly generating BSOD coming out of hibernation/sleep. In the past I have built computer with both brands of motherboards.

I had a problem a couple of yrs with a bios for a Gigabyte board and GB support swore there was nothing wrong with the BIOS until others started reporting the same problem.

My question is have others here had prolems with either of these two motherboards?
