I have to choose one from:



or, if it is a good reason, slightly more expensive 

- Asus Z170I Pro Gaming 

- MSI Z170I Gaming PRO AC


Which one i should choose and why? Which will be the best for stability, which for OC?

The ASUS is what I would go with, simply because i have learned that investing in a good board is worth it. 


they are all the same chipset, but i have never OCed on an ASUS or ASRock board, so i cannot help you there. 


between Gigabyte and MSI, I prefered GB's OC tools.


But yeah, I'd pick the ASUS board.
