Best ~200$ Motherboard for i5 3570k?

I'm looking for the best motherboard for around 200$. I have an i5 3570k and I mainly want to play games and overclock. I really want something like the Asus Maximus VI Hero, just for the LGA 1155 socket.

  3. You really do not need to go that high end unless you really want to. I am running the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 and got my 3570k up to 4.4 stable using only adjustments to intel turbo clock through the ASRock Smart OC in the bios.
  4. Thanks for the quick answers! The case i'm going to be using is a Corsair 750d, which has a window and I don't like the color scheme of the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 and Extreme6. It should also be a ATX board and preferably in red or blue.
