any p67 or z68 board will be able to get a 2500k to 4.X ghz. Its only when you start approaching the 5ghz and over that you may want a better mobo. IMO its not worth the extra $150 in motherboard cost for 0.5ghz, not to mention some serious cooling solutions you would require to get to 5ghz+, think watercooling. There are better ways to spend money to get more performance imo. like a better gfx card, PSU or SSD. List your full specs of the intended setup and what it will be used for. The asrock extreme 3 gen 3 is a nice board, not a bad OC'er and its cheap, leaving you to spend money on other things.
