The biggest difference is that the H97 doesn't support overclocking. For everything else, the Asus H97 pro gamer is better: build quality, features, Intel network card vs the crappy Killer on the Asrock. My motherboard (gigabyte z97x gaming 3) has the killer network card and it works, but can be a real pain if you run linux or other operating systems.

ASUS z97 pro gamer (it's same as the H97, but supports overclocking):

TL,DR: The Asus H97 is better i every single way but you should buy the Z97 based motherboard for overclocking.
