MSI Z77A-G45 VS ASRock Extreme 4

http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/88faafeb#/88faafeb/33
I was looking at these offers for the i5-3570k I plan on buying tomorrow and am absolutely lost as to which motherboard I should get. The ones that I like are out of stock at my local micro center, so I'm caught between a $95 ASRock Extreme 4 and an $80 Z77A-G45 motherboard. I plan on doing mild overclocking when I get a Hyper 212, but I don't know yet. I'd likely do OC-Genie overclocking and go as far as I can without worrying (Probably somewhere between 4-4.4 GHz). I'm likely using a 660ti, but I don't think I'd run it SLI in the future (I'd probably just upgrade). The G45 is $80 with a $10 mail in rebate and the Extreme 4 is $95. Which one should I go with? I'm hearing lots of mixed things, but the consensus seems to be that you can't go wrong with the Extreme 4.
