Best Motherboard for Overclocking I5 3570K

Hello guys, i need some advise please.

i've decided to get the i5 3570k processor and looking for a mobo that is the best for overclocking it.

I've been looking at the asrock z68 and z77 versions but dont know which one to get.

I dont plan on expanding or upgrading any components expect the gpu and overclocking cpu by cooling. (later on)

my budget for the mobo is under £100

  1. There is three good motherboards i'd recommend 1.GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H 2. ASUS P8Z77-V LK 3. ASRock Z77 Extreme6
  2. For a 3570K you are going to want a z77 chipset for overclocking my favorite is the ASRock Extreme 4 z77, for 103 pounds. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007KTY4A6/?tag=pcp0f-21
  3. The Asus board will have better VRMs than the ASRock, although either should be decent enough.

  5. Ok thank you guys for your answers. I've decided to go for an asrock mobo but theres so many different versions at different prices.

    Theres the asrock z77 extreme 4 board and the asrock falat1y z77 performance. They both at similar prices but which one should I get. Which ones better ?
  6. Get the Asrock it will suit your needs for decent overclocking.
  7. Ok both boards are good

    Im not too fussed about sli or crossfire, just looking for one that performs very good n great oc capabilities. The normal retail price for falat1y is generally higher than the extreme 4 but now there both the same price.
  8. Im not too fussed about sli or crossfire, just looking for one that performs very good n great oc capabilities < well worth the price for either , both are nice overclocking boards, I run that Asrock.

    With the price that close you can't go wrong with the choice you make.
  9. He didn't list the 6 as one of the ones he's going to choose.
    falat1y and the extreme 4
  10. True, but there's good information on the Extreme4 in that review.
