Maximus hero vs

So I am about to do a semi future proof build with the intent to SLI two 1080 ti when released. This will be a skylake build and I have two questions regarding it.

Here is my build so far

-CPU-6700k Skylake

-GPU- GTX 1080 SC ACX 3.0

-Ram-Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3000

-MOBO(in discussion)

-Case:Phanteks Enthoo Pro Full Tower Chassis

-PSU- Cougar 1000CMX Power Supply ATX

-Capture Card-Avermedia

Will need to add a sound card in the future

All of the USB Items that will be used
-Keyboard
-Mouse
-Gamecueb adapter
-Webcam
-Arcade stick
-Go-Pro


First is the motherboard choice. Below are the two motherboards I have selected to pick fron and want to know the primary differences as I cant see any at first glance. The choices are

---Asus Rog MAXIMUS VIII FORMULA DDR4 ATX Motherboard---

-or-

ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO


Secondly, will the power supply I have selected work for this set-up? Is my case big enough? Thanks in advance

Both board are fine, pretty much depends on what you need or looking for.
For the PSU I wouldn't go all the way to 1000W.
Check what I mean:

Get a decent EVGA 800w max and it's pretty much enough for SLI.
