Maximus V Gene without even thinking twice. Sure the gigabyte UP series represents Ultra Durable 5 which in other words gives you the best volts/stability factor for the VRM (implementation of thunderbolt is just overrated, hardly any devices out there that even support it). So this is a good hardware advantage to them. But features-wise, they are way old school. They've barely updated anything to their overclocking suite, still no fan controllers, etc.

ASUS has excelled in their ROG motherboards and have provided a handful amount of features and which are all user-friendly. Long story short, from personal experience, I'd recommend you to go with the Maximus V Gene mobo.

It awesome for the price and features. It also includes a WIFI card which is a big plus for almost the same price of an Extreme6. Thumbs up from my side man.
