I need help choosing a mobo for i5 4670k .. right now i'm thinking about:
Asus z87-pro, MSI z87-GD65 or GD45 and Asus Vi Hero this cards are in the same price range.. so :

-i don't rly need the wi-fi the z87 pro is offering .. but i like the bios, oc settings and 4-way optimization sounds "good" (one button "does all") + rly nice fan control (asus ai suite..)

-Vi hero same reasons .. only this one has a better sound card right ?!

-Msi GD65 .. not sure about it but it seems to offer more then asus pro at the same price .. am i wrong?

This pc would be used mostly for gaming and (a bit of) 3Ds Max .. also i want to be able to oc it (so a mobo with good oc and low temps is what i'm looking for)

Right now i am leaning towards Asus z87 Pro like i said i rly like the bios and utilities i have only 2 prob with this mobo first .. the wi-fi which i can ignore (ok ill buy it and not use it) and second .. it looks overpriced ..

these are the motherboards i picked but i am open to suggestions ..
If possible don't just say pick this one or this one try to explain why one is better and the other one isn't .. so .. pls help

Og the 3 narrow it down to the Asus or GB, I won't touch MSI, poor QC and support, I'd lean towards the Asus...both are good mobos so go with what you like best ;)
