Which of these two motherboards is best for my Haswell core i5?

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H (156euros)

vs

ASROCK Z87 EXTREME 3 (131euros)

Intentions are - some overclocking (4.0Ghz+) , gaming and maybe sli in the future.

  1. I've found Gigabyte boards to be rock solid stable in the past. No experience with Asrock's though.
  2. If you don't have many PCI or PCI-e cards, go for a AsRock z87-m pro4, it's cheap and it even manages to run my i5 at 4.8ghz stable.
  3. There both good. I personally prefer as rock better.
