Hi, im making a new lga1150 build and I was wondering which one of the two performs better, in terms of performance and specs
 
The Asus Z97 Pro Gamer is a better board with better specs than the ASRock Z97 Pro4.

Just a few details in difference on the Asus vs Asrock:
  • SupremeFX Audio vs. ALC892
  • 8 Phase CPU Power design vs. 6 Phase
  • AMD CrossfireX + Nvidia SLI vs. AMD CrossfireX
  • More PCIe slots vs. More PCI non-e
  • Intel Gigabit LAN vs. Realtek Gigabit LAN

Why a new lga1150 based build?
Do you already have some parts?
Modern lga1200 or 1700 parts are better price/performers if buying new.
I only have old components (ddr3 etc) I dont have the modern lga1200 and 1700 not even lga1151. I also can't afford the more modern components at the moment and imo ddr3 may be old but its still gold.

The Asus is slightly better. As for the performance both the same really if your overclocking the processor the Asus might give better results.
