Which of these motherboards is better?
I don't think the Asrock has a usb3 header, but can't you just run a cable through from the motherboard backplate usb3 slots into the front case usb3 slots? If not please correct me.
How many fans can you connect to each of the 2 motherboards is an important factor for me, as I would like to have the 1 fan on the cpu cooler and 3 - 4 on the case.
Any other factors to consider between the two motherboards, please mention.
Obviously the Asrock is £25 cheaper, so if a few sacrifices have to be made that could be solved with other hardware / software I would be fine with that.
