Z170 Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO or Z270 ASUS ROG STRIX Z270 E GAMING

Hey guys,

I'm going to be building a new PC with the Intel 7700k but I cannot decide on a motherboard. The decision is between the Z170 Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO or the ASUS ROG STRIX Z270E GAMING. The both cost the exact same ammount here in Aus, and I don't think 270 offers any new features I would use but I have no idea which would be the better buy.

Cheers

  1. Get a 270 board if your buying a Kaby CPU , that way it will have a compatible BIOS out of the box.

    That's definitely one approach, though I don't mind and will probably update the bios anyway which I believe fixes that.
