Do you just lack the time to do good cable management? I mean, all you have to do is move cables, stuff them away, insert them through things, route them around things, under things, between things, etc. Cable management doesn't require any special skills, but it does require a bit of time and the ability to concentrate on it. If you're too distracted by an extremely busy life, then yeah.
Anyway, between the two, I'd go with the MSI because I heard bad things about the DirectCU II for these modern cards. For cards like my GTX 580, it's awesome, but something about the design of the new cards and ASUS still using the old DirectCU II design, or something like that. I'm not sure. I just know that I heard bad things about it, and so I'm avoiding it, personally.
The XFX Double Dissipation was highly recommended to me too.
