HELP Select Best Motherboard

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,I'm wondering if you can give me advice and guidance as I'm planning to upgrade my PC mainly for FSX gaming.

Currently my setup is shown on my profile view since posting Pc Specs is not allowed by Avsim anymore.


Below is what I have ordered so far:

-i7-4790k processor
-H100i liquid cooler

-Crucial CT480M500SSD1 2 5 inch 480GB M500 SATA 6Gb s Internal SSD


Below is what I intend to use and keep from current setup:


-PSU Seasonic Gold 750W

-Fractal Define R4 Case


-2x8 Gb 1600Mhz Vengeance DDR RAM


What's the best motherboard with Wifi I can go for since my router is downstairs. I would have opted for Maximus Vll Hero with the good feedback review,but it doesn't come with Wifi. At the same time the Maximus Formula VII is the only option but it's a bit pricey of which I would not mind spending if I benefit the out of it..
I'm looking for something that can give the best performance in terms of Overclocking and Stability



Asus Maximus Vll Hero
Asus Maximus Vll Formula
Asus Extreme

Asus Z97 Pro Wifi AC


MSI-Z97-Gaming 9 AC

I've searched online,looked up on forums and Asus youtube videos  but I've not been able to decide what would work out best in my favor. 
Can anyone give a good recommendations and why? Thanks in advance.

I,ve always been an ASUS fan. Have been using them for years. Easy overclock utility features even novices can use. From your list, I would recommend the Z97 Pro with wifi. Regards.
