Asus z87 ws vs Asrock z87 extreme 9 ac

I am currently building a computer to last me for a while and do gaming, computer graphics like Maya and 3ds max, Photoshop, etc.

CPU Intel has well i7 4770k
GPU sapphire radeeon vapor x 7970 GHz end
Ram 32 GB trident x ddr3 2400
2* 256 ssds (waiting for sale on Samsung pro series)
Kracken 280 water cooling
2* Seagate 4tb drives for storage
Cooler master storm stryker case

Final major piece is the mobo. So for the price, the best options I see are the as rock extreme 9 or the Asus z87 WS.

Both are pretty close. The components are all top notch. The WS has a micro SD for possible cache usage, while the extreme has WiFi and thunderbolt and no micro ssd.

What would you pick for this configuration?

    I'd go with the Rock, Asus is good also, but generally give the nod to the Rock for quality and support

    Do you think ramdisk setup + ac WiFi + thunderbolt > 64 gb microssd as cache?

    I only ask because of the graphics and photography work we are going to do. Thanks!
