Hey guys, was just wondering on opinions on what Z77 Motherboard to get,
currently my choices are completely price based, with this board being £110.

I'm going to be getting an I5 3570k and overclocking with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo, using a Corsair TX750, NZXT 210 Elite case, 8GB of DDR3-1600 corsair ram, using possibly multiple hard drives (and an SSD when I get spare money).
Currently not rocking a GPU, will be buying a single card later on in the year, not into much gaming, more for video editing / rendering etc :) 

How does the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 perform on overclocking for example, does anyone know?
Are there any cheaper boards on:

that are better at overclocking, support for my build, etc?
Thanks,

That is a great board. A mother board is a mother board. They're all pretty much the same when it comes down to it and the only way that one could be better than another for a specific purpose would be different chip sets, and Z77 is good all around. It is great for your purpose, because the int. graphics will be great with out any dedicated video card. Go for it. It's a great mother board and you'll be happy with it.
