The "A" board gets a lot of respect from this overclocking community.

What cpu are you planning on running. Have you considered a z270 board instead?

This one: ASUS Z170-A. "Respect" meaning highly thought of and frequently recommended as good board at a fair price.

I will second the recommendation for the ASUS Z170-A......

Lots of features, excellent connectivity opportunities, plenty of Fan Headers, and the UEFI Bios is second to none with a decent set of overclocking profiles built in to provide a respectable over-clock right out of the box....

I am wondering between those two because the price of them is the same, the next one have only +2 USb 3.0 more, i dont know what about the overcloking potencial comaring to Z170-A

Well, you now have our input. You must make your own decision. Probably either board will be just fine.
