ASUS Prime or Strix
 
Paired with a 7700k I'm unsure which to pick. On amazon there is about 5 difference in price with the Strix being more expensive. I only care about features and performance looks are irrelevant.

Thanks.

Strix for me. In a review I read it overclocked with the lowest voltage required than any other board which results in better temps all around.

It's really a toss-up. Look for fan-headers and see if they are in the place you like them. Compare locations of 24-pin and make sure it lines up with your case grommets.

Buy the one you like the look of / fits in with your rig theme best.

Volts comment above is incorrect, just depends on BIOS and your own ability to drive them down.

Thanks, I'm putting this in a non windowed Fractal Define C so I don't mind what it looks like.

If they're similar I think I'll go with the Prime as it seems more straight to the point no nonsense with gimmicky stuff. The Strix looks like you have to install a bunch of junk audio software with it.
