MSI 970A-g46 vs Asus M5A97 le r2.0. Help ASAP?

Hi I am going to order my new PC build tomorrow and I am making the final arrangements. I am torn between the MSI G46 and M5A97 le r2.0. I know the le r2.0 has no VRM heatsink, so I'm a little hesitant about that, even thought I have no plan to overclock, I still want that oppurtunity there. I would appreciate it if someone tells me which one I should get, and which board is better overall. Thanks.

EDIT: I will be using the FX 6300.

If you feel more comfortable with the MSI, purchase it. Both are in similar price range/features.

I probably will end up buying the MSI, mainly because it is a little more overclock friendly (I think) and has VRM heatsink.
