The only difference between the two is the form factor. They will both achieve the same over clocking levels. Just look at the size and layout to see which one fits the bill. Bios is another area and Asus is great in that department. I haven't used an MSI board with uefi bios yet so I can't comment. Either board will be great.

I have the GENE Z, and it is an amazing board, especially for over clocking. But for gaming, either board will do really, just pick whichever one you want
