Hey guys, building my new rig and can't decide which mobo to pick. As the thread title says I'm wondering between ASUS Z87-A & MSI Z87-G45 GAMING. Can you help me sorting this out? Thanks in advance. :)

The Asus A, far and away better of the two, Asus has the best handle on the Z87 chipset , both the Rock and Gigabyte are close....MSI is behind in managing heat and OCing, not to mention they have poor Quality Control and support

Which would you pick between ASRock Z87 Extreme4 & MSI Z87-G45 GAMING?

As the prev comment pointed, simply the MSI should be your last option if you plan to overclock and willing to keep you cpu and Mobo cool and optimised.

In the second scenario the Rock mobo - won't touch MSI - and between the Rock and the Asus, I'd go the Asus....

Hmm, I don't really like ASRock, and it's color..mehhh...Asus hasn't got any special feautures...so ordered MSI, read only good reviews about it. :)

ASUS without question - I have the Sabertooth Z87 and it's a fantastic, very well made board. Have a look at my gaming rig in this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLJrJU-D-fo

There is no reason to bash MSI and OP it is just as good a choice as the others mentioned. In that price range the quality is about the same across the board.

Quality might be, but have seen to many issues of QC, bad boards hitting the shelves
