I love my RIVF, the PICE slot spacement, the red led at the bottom. The sound is also very decent, especially since i don't use 500$ head set... It did a good job at OCing my 3930k. ROG Connect is very handy. I like the red and black theme. I personally find the sabertooth very ugly but this is just my opinion, it don't make it a lesser product.
Having only 4 DIMMs is not a problem for me since 16bg is plenty for what i do. It's my 3rd ROG board and i have loved them all, never had a pbm with any of them.
But at this point i don't think you would see a real world difference going with any of these board. Pick up what functionality/garantee etc etc suit you best.

Hope it helped

I just bought the asrock because i never had one before.. Had asus before so i know they're solid... took a $350 gamble.... will see how it turns out.
