Haswell motherboard to buy? help me please!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My choice is between the:
Gigabyte Z87 Ud5h
Asus Maximus VI Hero
They are selling at the same price ($189).
I read somewhere in this forum that Gigabyte using higher quality components for their mobo and ASUS are overpriced for what they offered. So I would have gone with the Z87 UD5H already but because a lot of negative feedback on Newegg and Amazon about faulty USB 3.0 port that stop working after couple days of used or bios problems, and Gigabyte customer support does not seem to know the solution to fixed.
So which board do you think I should buy?
BTW the z87 UD4H is $10 cheaper, how does its build quality compare to the UD5H and Hero?
Thank you for helping me

If I'm not mistaken wasn't the USB 3.0 issue for ALL haswell boards? I've been looking into buying a haswell setup to replace my I7 930 build and have been seeing it with several manufacturers boards. I think the later bio's fixed most of these issues. I've been looking at either the Gigabyte UD3H, UD5H, and the AsRock Extreme 4 and 6. I'd personally go with the gigabyte because I can't stand the red and black boards tongue.gif.

Hero gets my vote, everyone seems to love it. I personly loved my Maximus VI formula but my faulty wall outlet at my parnets house i used for like 2 minutes before i went back to my apartment killed my PSU, monitor, and motherboard for sure, haven't got the rest of my rig tested lol.
