Mobo for red/white build

Hi all im building a red/white build and now down to choosing an alternative for my mobo, my pick was the Asus z170 Pro Gaming but I am now considering the MSI Z170 Gaming M5 is it a better choice or should I stick with Asus? (Another note though MSI has bundled a free full version of rainbow six siege when you buy an M5)

 

My other components in case it's needed:

 

i5-6600K

Avexir ROG Impact 8gb dual DDR4

MSI R9 390 Twin Frozr V 8gb

Sandisk Plus 250gb

WD blue 1tb 7200rpm

ID-Cooling Frostflow 240L

Enthoo Pro Luxe (White)

 

Thanks all.;)

im suggesting a maximus 8 hero over this, but its red and black, instead of red and white

I'd advice you to look into some of the G1 boards for ascetics because they have a beautiful mixture of white, red and black.

I think it's just a matter of opinion and yes it's gigabyte I've had my fair share of gigabyte boards and I've been happy with all of them

Would you say that the Gaming 7 is worth the $30-$40 increase from my current pick the Asus Z170 Pro Gaming?:), the color would blend in well but i do hope its BIOS and UEFI is noob friendly as this would be my first ever build.:)

in my opinion, always use asus boards though

best bios

lowest failure rates

great customer service (at least in my experience)
