They are all pretty good boards. However, lately with the quality and builds of the ASRock mobo's, I'd probably stick with them personally. Either way; I doubt you can go wrong with any of the three.

yeah, im leaning towards ASRock as well
i have heard that they are smaller than the normal size...is this likely to cause any problems??

+1^ the Asrock board should be the one you go for. As for size don't worry about it....

Yeah, no worries about that. It actually gives you a little more room to work around it. I love my P67 Extreme 6 and from my last ASRock board from 2002-2004 era; it's LEAPS and BOUNDS better. I would say this is probably one of the highest quality boards I've ever worked with next to Intel server platforms.

That ASROCK extreme 4 will def handle your OC goal and then some. Heck my ASROCK Z77 Pro3 handles 4.5Ghz on my i5-3570k on a H60 in push/pull.
