What board to choose

I have a Maximus Iv GeneZ and honestly am surprised what the little guy was able to do.

I recently upgraded to crossfire and slot spacing sucks on my current board making top gpu run hotter than I like.

I bought 7870's for the sole purpose they run cool enough water cooling is pointless. So I would like to upgrade my board to something with better slot spacing to give my top gpu some breathing room.

Here's what I have been looking at so far.

The Max V is what I'm leaning towards, but that little Gigabyte Sniper looks interesting. I just hate Gigabyte boards

would love to hear some opinions, anyone own the Sniper and can comment
