Motherboard Review

Hi, I'm looking into motherboards, and in an effort to shave a little pricing off my build, I was wondering how the below-mentioned motherboard would handle in terms of light overclocking and overall performance.

ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  1. I can't speak for this board directly. I can speak of my experience with ASRock. My last budget build, was built about 4-5 years ago, and just taken out of comission a month ago. I had an ASRock M3A770DE in it. The board took everything I threw at it with out any problem. It OC'd just fine for me (just remember to have a good cooling solution if you OC) The only reason it's been replaced is because It didn't have USB 3 or SATA 3. IMO if you match up a good PSU,CPU, and GPU on the board you should be able to enjoy years of budget gaming.
  2. I'm planning on using a Gigabyte windforce gtx 670 gpu and a intel i5-3570 processor. My PSU by all accounts should handle it.

    But can anyone give me some idea of how this specific model would handle? Its a lot cheaper than other ASRock motherboards, and I'm not sure about its OC capacity.
