Default Which Z97 motherboard for new 4790K CPU?

I plan on ordering the new 4790K CPU next week when they're available. Anyone have a suggestion for a Z97 motherboard? I prefer ASUS but am open to others. This is for an HDSpark system.

Thanks,
Brad

I also like Asus but there wasn't enough sata ports on the boards in the price range in which I was looking.
I went with an Asrock Z97 Extreme 6 for $169.

Anton, I believe the OP is more interested in the 'Z' series rather than the 'X' series.

The problem with the Asrock Z97 extreme 6 is that the bottom PCI-e slot is only a 2x instead of a 4x like on most other boards which makes it a pain if you want to use something like a Decklink 4K card and not have it share with the Graphics card

Yes, you are correct and that is a very good point; however, the OP did mention in his post that he was building with an HD Spark card which is 1X. This board would be more than enough for that at a fairly reasonable cost.
Since I am not ready to commit to 4K, I did not need the extra 4x or 8x slot. I did need extra SATA ports. I'm using an HD Spark card and a Intensity Pro, both of which only use 1X lanes. The extra lanes needed for a 4K card will be included with my Haswell-E build at the end of the year. That way I can keep my Storm 3G as well. Plus that chipset and motherboard will accept the Broadwell-E chip in 2015.
The fact that HDMI 2.0 has not been fully implemented across the board keeps me from even considering a 4K card. Once the dust has settled, which might be a while, I then can get the current processor, motherboard, and monitor for full 4K work.

I was just pointing out that it was only a 2x slot. Not everyone can afford to buy multiple systems so making sure you get the right board is crucial.

Personally out of the Z97 boards I like the Gigabyte Z97X-UD7 TH, as it gives you 8 SATA sockets and 2 Thunderbolt 2 ports built in unlike the new Asus ones which have to use the Asus TB card to get TB.

I would be concerned with the PLX chip running the 3-1x slots. In my case, as well as the OP, these are the slots that would be used. There is a certain amount of latency involved in that switching. I just prefer that all of my slots are controlled by the main Intel chipset/controller. Other than that, if someone wanted TB this board would be a nice option. I do prefer the actual TB to be on the board as opposed to a header and card. The Renasas USB 3.0 Chipset is also a welcome feature.

Everybody, thanks for the great information! I have no experience with the Asrock boards but I'm going to check them out now.
