Either is a top of the line motherboard. I'd bet there's less than a 1% top OC performance between them. I'm partial to Asus ROG boards right now, so that would be my choice.

Thank you :), but still if anyone else can come up with any "+" or "-" for both of the boards (except for the SLI and 3-way SLI thing) please do tell

I also prefer Asus ROG boards, Intel Gb LAN, red and black color scheme, awesome customer support and warranties. The onboard audio is actually quite decent as well. At this price point and feature set, you could pretty much choose based on brand preference, and color scheme.

I give my nod to the Asus boards as well. I have an ROG Z77 board, so far it's have been very good. Rocking a nice 4.2GHz on my 2700k with no voltage increase. One of the best onboard audio solutions I have ever heard
