I am looking for a good and very stable motherboard for my i5 4670K. I bought a MSI G45 Gaming but it arrived faulty so I am returning it and considering another motherboard because It felt very cheap and brittle. I have heard many positive reviews on ASUS Motherboards but I wouldn't mind other good companies.

Budget: Around £120
Usage: The motherboard will be used for a gaming build. I will also want to OC my cpu to about 4ghz and more in the future.

These are my other PC specs:

PCPartPicker part list:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($219.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ OutletPC)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($96.69 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($88.99 @ Amazon)
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($84.99 @ Microcenter)
Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($82.99 @ NCIX US)

Best regards :)

I've had two ASUS Z87-Pro boards and both have been rock solid and easy to use, plus they have built-in WiFi. I think it's around £140, though. A bit over budget but it is the only haswell board I can vouch for. My previous experiences were all 1155 or AMD boards. ASRock seemed okay as well, but I'm sticking with ASUS from now on.

EDIT: ASUS sells other similar boards with less features, like the Z87-Plus, which is cheaper. It may be perfect for your needs.
