Default Motherboard upgrade.

This is for a friend, he has just bought a i7-4790k. And he is looking for the best gaming motherboard for under 100.

What would you guys suggest? I think he wants one that has a cover thingy over the ports etc on the motherboard. Like the ASUS MAXIMUS VIII HERO has.

Any suggestions?

AMD FX 9370 @ 4.4Ghz
Asus Crosshair V Formula Z
Deepcool Genome Case with Watercooling
16GB DDR3 1600Mhz
Areocool 750W Semi Modular PSU

Default Re: Motherboard upgrade.

For under 100 he's unlikely to be able to get that feature that he wants.

Anyway, my suggestion is the ASRock Z97 Pro4, or if he wants to splash a little bit more cash, the ASRock Z97 Extreme4.
Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
