Hey guys. Am a bit confused. Am doing a new build and was planning on this being a Haswell one. But unluckily Haswell really does not seem to be much of an upgrade to my current Ivy setup. I am currently running a delidded 3570k with a Asus Maximus V Gene. I need to go in for a full ATX or EATX board for my new build.

I have been using ROG boards for the last 4 years and I now wanted to try something different. The two boards I can get locally are:

1. MSI Mpower Z77
2. Asrock Z77 OC formula

I like both of them, the Mpower a bit more because of the clean look, but I needed some opinions on these before I go ahead. I know the Mpower seems to be having some issues with offset overclocking as well as ram clocking. The ASrock seems to be more solid overall.

Well, taing into account that both the boards may have their own quirks, can some of you help me to make a decision on one of these?
