ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA1151 or Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7

This has probably been asked 100's of times but I want some reassurance. The Gigabyte board seems to have slightly better reviews, so I am kind of leaning that way. I am looking for the more reliable board, I will be doing some slight overclocking on a 6600k.

Thanks

    I've done some research and it seems all the negative reviews on the HERO board are easily fixable. I think I will go with this one as it would aesthetically look better for my build, the Gigabyte looks like a sour thumb lol.
  4. Can't go wrong , I own 2 previous versions , great choice.
