    The Hero is the better motherboard, it's faster and more stable for overclocking although the Pro4 would be just fine for gaming and mild overclocking.

    Ty:), If i may ask. Faster as in how? Will i see some sort of improvements @ gaming/streamining/rendering? If so its probably worth the extra 80 Euros, but it should be a decent improvement i guess, its not something that i would just throw away for a minimal improvement

    Faster probably isn't the best way for me to describe how one Z87 board is better than the other, as outside synthetic benchmarks, the real world performance will be pretty well similar. Where the Hero really outperforms the Pro4 is on build quality, features, and overclocking stability. Asrock makes some pretty good boards, but cuts corners at times on lower end boards to make them more affordable. One example is my Z77 Extreme4 that I purchased last year. The PCB was thinner than that of a standard motherboard in an effort to drive down costs. Extra care is required while installing as to not damage the board.
