anything in the asrock line overclocks like a champ. i can hit 5.1ghz and higher.

you might want to go with z77 over z68. i mean if you are doing an upgrade may as well leave yourself open for an ivybridge upgrade w/ full features.

really it comes down to how much you want to spend and what features you are looking for.

asrock extreme 3, 4, 6... whatever really

the motherboard you mentioned is fully featured, why would you want to replace it?

This is my build.

My Computer Specs:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: Sandy Bridge i5-2500k CPU@3.3GHz OC at 4.3
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3
GPU: EVGA Nvidia GTX 460
RAM: Corsair Dominator 6GB
PSU: 650 Corsair
MOUSE: Logitech G500

if not the motherboard. maybe get a new graphics card RAM and maybe a better PSU?

Best solution
