Both are good motherboards. The MPOWER is a better board but the Extreme4 is more than enough and will still achieve a great overclocking.

As for the thermal paste, the NT-H1 is one of the best ones out there. You must have got some with the NH-D14.

go for the Extreme4, u generally do not need to get higher than that range in mobos unless u specifically want a feature in the more expensive boards

MPOWER is an overkill ,, you can also buy an Extreme 6 with that money ...
