Gigabytes and MSI gaming boards look great as well.
Never touching gigabyte again and I've heard too many horror stories from MSI. So ASrock or Asus, and I'm leaning towards asus because of past experiences.

Yea I would not buy an MSI board ever myself. Just from personal experience over the years and what not
I kinda like the 6gbs sata's on haswell (always wanted a ssd raid 5 setup)... but yeah, dunno if it's worth the money. Do they clock well, can they fold good? I'm on a mora 3 with three 580's, so thermals shouldn't be much of a concern.
I'll look at some of the z78 boards.
