If you are going to do water, save the money and get the Asrock. If you are going ot do air, the Asus is the way to go.

Other than that....they perform the same. i have had both. Currently rocking the Asus as of yesterday, as I switched back to Air. the asrock simply does not have the clearance for a cooler and GPU
