MSI Z87-G45 Gaming vs ASRock Z87 Extreme4

Hello, I'm in the process of buying the last parts for my PC and can't quite decide which Mobo would be best for my build. Parts as Follows:
Intel Core i7-4770K
Noctua NH-D14
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866
Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 3GB WINDFORCE (wll be in SLI next year most likely)
NZXT Phantom ATX Full Tower
Corsair 860W ATX12V

So which of these would be better for my build? I plan to do some mild OC, nothing too extreme, however. I've also read several issues with after market coolers making ram install difficult, so I wanted to keep that in mind.

MSI z87

ASRock z87

Any Outlying suggestions are welcome as well.
