Im searching a good motherbord for Haswell, specially a good stability, mature bios and less number of issues generally, the overclock practise is not so important for me, im a discreet overclocker and i do sometimes just for quiet daily use configurations.

I want an Asus with Foxconn LGA ( not Lotes ), and i saw these two models for my budget around 180 - 200$.

a few "non-techy" points to consider for me was having an onboard power button (on the pro)....as far as im aware the sabertooth doesnt have one. the sabertooth has a few giimmicks (thermal armour, boot to bios,...). If you're unsure about the colour scheme(i changed my x58 colour scheme twice!) go with the sabertooth...
