  1. Which is the better mobo, I'd say the Hero overall, does it have Bluetooth and Wireless built in - No, if you need those integrated look to the Asus Maximus VI Formula....I myself run the Hero and love it, I have no need for Bluetooth and for wireless, even if it had it I wouldn't use it, I don't like antennas in the rear around all the power cords, I prefer a good USB WiFi adapter from the FP. Asus seems to have the handle on the Z87 chipset better than the other manufacturers
  2. is the i7 4770k and the i5 4670k both a good match for the Hero or would the asrock z87 extreme4 be better?

  4. Yes, I've got the 4770K in mine (my son also build a very similar rig with the Hero and 4770K), most of the gaming rigs I build with the Hero are using 4670K (as the need for Hyperthreading isn't really called for) though I've done 2 pretty strictly gaming rigs with 4770Ks also.
