Well, spec-wise they are both similar. Personally maybe Corsair, depends do you like RGB etc.

You should wait for more answers.

 

My vote is on the Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro, even tho it is a bit pricier.

I like the looks of the rgb pro more, but they are both good quality, tho the corsair ones might have a lower faiure rate than the gskill ones becouse of the price

i worked with that board, the xmp is a bit janky, 2 sets of ram had to be manual timings entered, figured i'd just wing it for intel and just ddr3200, but nope. So i recommend pick the ram off the asrock qvl based on your budget.

 

Also, when i was doing research for the z390, i noticed most of the z370 boards have an insanely high amount of 1-egg reviews on newegg over the past 6 months (it's like the QC just went straight into the trashcan after launch), the exceptions being the evga z370 boards (same price, known for warranty) and the msi z370 killer, so take a look at those.

Pretty good motherboards.

Personally also don't have much luck with MSI mobos the last few models I've had from them.
