ASRock Pro3 vs Pro4 vs Extreme4 Z77


So I'm going to be going with the following build:
CPU: i5-3750k
GPU: 7850
PSU: 750W
Case: Fractal Design R3
RAM: 8GB 1.5v DDR3-1600 CAS 9

So I'm deciding on the motherboard. I'm on a budget, and the Extreme4 is already pretty pricey for me, so I would like to know if I can buy the Pro3 and not be disappointed. The main difference I see is that the Pros don't have gold caps.... does that do anything? Here's a link comparing all three:

If you have any other suggestions, go ahead and make them. I was going to go with the Extreme3 Gen3, but then IB and Z77 came (coming) out. What do you think? What are the differences?

  1. I think the extreme is better for overclocking, but the pro should be good enough.
  2. So how far could I realistically overclock with a Hyper 212 Evo (base it off of an i5--2500k... I know IB is not out yet)?

    This is from a long time ago. Why didn't I put my CPU cooler?
