What Motherboard should i buy? Asus P8Z77-V LX OR ASROCK Z77 FATAL1TY PERFORMANCE

what mobo is the best for this build:
i5 3570k ( i dont know if i am going to oc)
4x2 patriot viper ram
sapphire hd 7870 oc ghz edition ( i might oc one or two times to test)
corsair tx 650w
sandisk ultra plus 128gb sdd
wd 2tb hdd
aerocool xpredator x1 white
hyper 212 EVO cpu cooler

i know that asrock mobo is better for oc, but i dont know if i am going to oc the cpu, anyway i am going to buy hyper 212 evo for cooling the cpu.

will asus mobo work just fine or is worth paying 15 euros more for fatal1ty?

  1. I've always preferred ASUS as a company and their products have always been solid and long lasting and in this case it's cheaper, I'd go ASUS but it really is your choice.
  2. Asus>ASRock
    ASRock will not provide that stability and class which Asus provides. Asus and MSI only. When it comes to motherboards.

    You can still overclock nicely on the asus one, although the asrock (fatality) one has more power phases so the power delivered to the CPU is more stable, but if you're not gonna do much overclocking the asus one is absolutely fine.

    It would be better if you were to overclock since you have a K-sku CPU (and overclocking is essentially free performance), but if you don't want to overclock that's fine.
