    My picks:
    $200 ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
    $278 Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5

    Here's the problem, OC vs vCore the MOBOs you listed would have a higher vCore than the ones I listed for your target OC. I 'get' your ~$150 budget, I'd love a 2012 Corvette for $25K. There's a good correlation to higher Phase power to lower vCore.

    The $178 ASUS P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1) is a viable choice if your don't care about the Z68 or any of its features.
