I'm having trouble deciding on which board to buy. I was initially going to buy the UD3R but now the Asus Rampage III Gene is on sale for 10$ less than the Gigabyte.
The salesperson told me that mATX boards generally perform worse than full sized ATX boards. But I did some searching and there was no indication that a mATX board is slower just because of it's size.
My question is, what would you guys recommend? Are mATX boards really slower? Will I have trouble fitting a after-market CPU fan in?
I'm just a casual gamer and I'll probably do some CPU over-clocking here and there.

There is no performance difference between MATX vs ATX. Really, the difference is just the number of PCI slots / spacing. You won't go wrong with either motherboard, so go with the cheaper board... IMO.
^+1 i agree personally i prefer the flexibility of an ATX board though.
