best mobo to overclock (3570k)

Hi, was wondering what the best motherboard for me would be for my gaming build. I plan on buying a 3570K and overclocking it (around 4.5ghz)
Also I was looking at getting a vapor X 7950 and overclocking that as well (1000mhz or higher if I get a good chip)
I'm looking to spend around $120-$150

From what I've found a Z77 chip is the way to go, I was going to buy the extreme 4 but then I saw some were having trouble with it. are these problems wide spread or were those people just unlucky?

Other relavent specs:
8gb RAM
hyper 212 Evo

  1. What is your budget? I would recommend the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H if you can afford it.
  2. its a little bit outside my budget. I'm looking to spend around $120-$150

    ASUS P8Z77-V LK - $125 after rebate on newegg right now.

    I dont live in the US so I can't use rebates. however if it is a good mobo I will be willing to spend and extra $20 or so
