How do motherboard choices and cooling solutions look for each platform?

Those two platforms are very different and is more than just a processor brand difference.

Personally the AMD be the better choice out of the two because you can overclock it, the i5 you listed is going to be seriously limited on overclock ability. but that's just my opinion.
