Asrock Fatal1ty z97 Killer or Asus z97-C? + Noctua NH-D14 question

Hey, I'm new here =)

I'm buying a new PC next month and I'd like to know what's the main difference between those 2 boards and which is "better"?

Also will the Noctua NH-D14 fit WITHOUT interfering with the first PCI 3.0 x16 slot?

Thank you for your help!

they are basically the same with minor differences in lan, audio, the asrock also has thunderbolt.

noctua page has a compatibility with motherboards page, both will work perfect, if you need to check any other here is the link

Generally, between the two, ASUS has a longer/better history.
