So, I've been sitting on this build for awhile and I'm stuck between two mobos.

ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer - 2x PCIe x16, 4x USB 3.0, 3x USB 2.0
or
ASUS Z97-K -- 2x PCIe x16, 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0

Comp. specs:
i7-4790K Processor (4x 4.0GHz/8MB L3 Cache)
Corsair Hydro Series H55 Liquid CPU Cooling
Corsair Vengeance 16 GB [8 GB x2] DDR3-2133
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 - 4GB
850 Watt - Corsair RM850 - 80 PLUS Gold, Full Modular
128GB ADATA SP610 SSD + 1TB 7200RPM HARD DRIVE

I've been told that ASUS is the more reliable product and I'll agree since I'm quite the ASUS fangirl, but after further research it looks like the Z97 Killer performs better than the Z79K.

I haven't seen many overall reviews comparing the two, so I need a third and fourth opinion.

Which of the two would you recommend?

Motherboards usually affect the performance of system very minimally. I'd go for the Asrock as it seems to be the more solid board out of the two. You are paying more for the Asrock though.
