I currently have a msi 990-fxa gd-80 motherboard and an AMD FX-8120 OC to 4.5 ghz. I am looking to upgrade to the Intel 4790K cpu and am having a hard time deciding between the following motherboards, ASUS Maximus VII Hero Vs. GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK. I am looking for the best value and also pretty good overclocking and stability.

I've been running the Z87 Hero with 4770K since August of last year and found it to be the best Z87, so picked up the Z97 Hero, and it's even better, OCs better, runs cooler, handles even faster DRAM, BIOS is improved (over what was a great BIOS). Haven't gotten my hands on the GB yet,but am thinking it's probably still a bit behind the Hero
