i ll be running a core i7 2600k as of now with a good amount of overclock. Atleast 4.5ghz and system will be on for lot of time. Looking for a performance motherboard with some really good OC features.

these are few motherboards I was considering..

Asus Maximus V GENE : I assume very good built quality

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 : value for money types

Suggest me some good mobos please.. or any of the above..

Have been running ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 for about a week now and it's perfectly stable with a good power delivery system. Got 4.4GHz overclock on a stock voltage i5-3570K with a cheap air cooler. I like Asus but will never change from ASRock if this is what they're all like.
