I would go with MSI, they care about customers, ASRock doesn't.

bt which is good motherboard by specs?

It's not all about specs though, mobo's are very finicky stuff, I would judge them by reliability, compatibility, and stability more than anything.

As far as gaming goes, #1 factor is graphics card, #2 is CPU, the rest is really negligible as long as it works, yes even the memory sticks at ordinary 1600mhz is fine, any higher is like unnoticeable.

Some MSI boards are notorious for weak VRMs that pop under load.
As for customer service, I had a very pleasant and easy email exchange with ASRock last summer over replacement of an out-of-warranty motherboard. It was remarkably painless, and cost me just $50 to replace a $150 board.
I have installed numerous ASRock boards, and only this one I bought second-hand (why no warranty) ever failed. My own rigs, however, are Asus; my selection order would be Asus > ASRock > Gigabyte > Biostar >= MSI.

I'd love to know how you know this? I emailed ASRock with a very minor question regarding their board, and got a very professional, non-generic reply by someone in Taiwan who not only answered my question to my satisfaction but provided a full name and a direct email address for me to reply to. His reply to my email arrived within hours of me writing it. If you're going to slander a company, at least explain your experience with them.
