Question Nas Rebuild

Currently I'm looking at 2 boards to rebuild my ageing z77 Nas and I'm going Matx for this build.

Now I want this build to be a Pure HTPC/File Sever.

1.GRYPHON Z97

2.Z97MPLUS

At I have the Haf Xb Evo I was thinking rebuild with these or should I wait for ddr 4 and a decent 8 core Haswell-E as it won't be used for gaming I'm planning on using all data ports for storage.

I have a 12tb back up Nas that I can use to mirror this new build once complete. But wanted some Hwc feedback. This will be my permanent Nas that I won't need to change.

Basically I'm looking for Reliability,Storage,Speed, I'll be using 32Gigs of ram Regardless of build, and for CPU I was planning on not needing to Oc till need to.

I like overkill as I know I can push further when needed I'll be using all features of modern CPUs like c states so while it's idle it uses little power till its Transforming then ramps up as needed.

Atm I have Win 2012 and Win 2008 free from Local College I did some work for. But iv been hearing about using ZFS for multiple disks in a raid rather then storage spanning.

It was a cheapo Acer I got from staples for $350 It's really starting to show its age in Xbmc crazy random bugs popping up. Plus the current state of it is that it's just slower then I'd like. Atm it's file sharing speed over Network is really bad even though it's hardwired into router
The Asus 68ac all clients have Ac adopters for wireless and not 1 laptop/pm is more then 30ft from router and all on same floor.

Plus it's time to Build a Dedicated File Server / HTPC just needed some input from HWC on build choices or if I should wait for ddr4 as I want ECC Ram in this build.
