ASRock Z270 Fatality K6 vs Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 5

I am looking to buy the i5 7600K, now I'm stuck between choosing the ASRock Fatality K6 and the Gigabyte Z270X Gaming 5. The Gigabyte is a bit more pricey than the ASRock, but if it performs better, I'll be more than happy to pay the difference. Which motherboard is better? I do plan to overclock the CPU.

    Motherboard doesn't effect performance of a CPU unless you plan on overclocking. Both boards should work fine for you. Depends on what ports and features you'd like.

  3. I'd recommend reading the reviews in that case. Only they can give you detailed performance breakdowns.
    For example:
    http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/74183-gigabyte-aorus-z270x-gaming-5-motherboard-review.html
    http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/74165-asrock-fatal1ty-z270-gaming-k6-motherboard-review.html

    The reviews should be pretty comparable tests and conditions wise so decide for yourself
