Need Motherboard Suggestion

comatorium53

I currently selected the ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO for my build, but I just discovered that it has a ton of issues. I am basically looking for something that has plenty of USB ports, ample amount of PCI slots, great built in sound quality, Wifi capabilities, and most importantly, efficient and easy over clocking for a first timer. Here is the rest of the build (still missing adequate cooling). Thanks in advance for advice :)

Looks good to me. I've chosen the same Processor along with Asus Z97-PRO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard for my immediate future build.

I think that motherboard hits most areas you have. Not sure how you feel about Asrock though.

Also worth mentioning, there's a lot of issues with the 840 evo SSD's, I'd got with an 840 pro, or spill the extra money for the 850 line if you can. Their read speeds deteriorate on older files.
