Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H vs Azrock Z87 Extreme4

Hi,
I'm going to upgrade my computer and I intend to overclock, not hardcore overclocking may be just 4.4 or 4.5 for example on i5 4670k
so I wanted to ask which motherboard is better one?
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mainboards/display/gigabyte-ga-z87x-d3h_11.html#sect0
or Azrock Z87 Extreme4
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mainboards/display/asrock-z87-extreme4_11.html#sect0

we may also consider
msi z87-g45 gaming

the MAIN AND MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION is:
did someone tried to overclock on the Azrock extreme4?
since they are saying on xbitlabs review that "Changing one BIOS options may change a few others automatically, which may lead to unpredictable results. It makes it harder to overclock and even to manually configure the system. So, we’d definitely recommend ASRock for building an LGA 1155 platform, but when it comes to LGA 1150, then this is not yet the case."

thanks in advance for anyhelp

P.S
please suggest me the best sub 30$ aircooler .. thanks

  1. Best answer
    I have overclocked my 4770k to 4.4 and 4.5 successfully on my Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H.
    The GA-Z87X-D3H is very similar and uses the same heatsink and cpu power design.
    I've built on that mobo also but used a non k 4670.
    Excellent bios and easy to use.
    And I agree with ACTechy the CM Hyper 212 EVO is great,i used that on the GA-Z87X-D3H /4670 build.
  2. Thanks guys for your help,
    also any experience with overclocking on Azrock z87 extreme 4 would be much appreciated
