I have used Gigabyte boards in the past without issue and have nothing bad to say about them.

In the recent years, I have switched to Asus boards. Asus seems to be more innovative with their products. With that said, I recommend the Asus boards.

I used gigabyte and had no issues to date. To be honest between gigabyte and asus I think it's more a question of which fits your build colour scheme best :)
