Z170 Mobo - MSI M7 or Asus Maximus VIII Hero

Hello all,

I'm building a new PC with the new i7 6700k (already purchased).

I'm having a difficult time deciding between the MSI M7 or the Asus VIII Hero. Both have relatively similar specs and pricing over all.

I'm currently leaning towards the Asus VIII Hero, what do you guys think?

    I'm in the same boat, literally, same exact boat as you. I posted a thread too, 0 replies.

    Both have great features, but MSI seems to have better EMI protection and less interference than the Asus. I tried the Asus Gene (mATX of the Hero) and had issues, and a static pop off the mobo on start up/shut down. The Asus seems great though. The Gigabyte 7 seems great too from seeing reviews.

    All 3 are a consideration. I hope someone can clear up specifics between these boards.
