Asus P8Z77-V Pro vs AsRock Z77 Extreme6

Hi guys,

This summer I'll be making a build and I'm getting started on the research now.

I basically already know what I want for my build entirely except for the motherboard. I'll list out my parts, and then I just want to know which board of the Asus p8z77-v pro or asrock extreme6 are...better? I guess? I seem to trust Asus a bit more, considering I've only heard of asrock the other day, but the asrock seems pretty popular.

i5-3570k
gtx 670
gskills ripjaw 8gb 1600 ddr3 240-pin
and then of course my:
750w psu
128gb ssd & 1tb hdd
blu ray drive

I'm going to be gaming alot with this setup, and I'm not a freak of the cheapest parts, I like the best parts. I like the wifi chip on the asus, and all of the other features it has like more ports, but I don't think I need most of them.

Mainly, which of the two is the best "bang for the buck", most reliable, and higher performance I guess.

Any other suggestions are welcome too.

Thanks a ton!

  1. Different motherboards don't change performance at stock, just have more features (such as improved overclocking and/or connectivity). I'd take the Asus.
  2. i like the asus for the 12 + 4 VRM power delivery system. more stable for overclocking.
