Which one? Asus is on sale at 124 dollars.
If its only $10 like on newegg id go Asus just cause i like them better.
Splitting hairs with two solid brands here. Maybe it comes down to color preference.
I just finished a build with the Asus Z97A and loved it. Solid build. All the connectors that I needed. Simple to use bios settings page including an option to update the bios. And the windows based Asus optimization program was super easy to use to overclock my CPU and set fan and energy settings that work very well with my build.
All things both do very well. These are the best over clocking boards around really in that price range and are very evenly matched in features and ability. Either is great
I personally go for asus because i trust the company and like their products. However i will say asus bios is extremely easy to use and comes with great software, which is why i would recommend it.
They perform neck and neck. I'd say go with whichever has a better color scheme for the build.
ASUS for slightly better software and BIOS. It also overclocks a little better.
