Assuming you're referring to the ASRock Z75 Pro3 and the ASRock Z77 Pro4, I say they are both excellent boards for the money.

I think I stated this on one of your threads already. The Z75 received a promising review from tweaktown. It can easily allow your CPU to be overclocked in the 4.5GHz range.

The Z77 Pro4 would be a better buy. It has more power phases as well as more Sata 6Gb/s ports. This may come in handy if you want to add more Sata III devices such as SSDs or HDDs. The power phases will help with overclocking.

Yes, I was talking about the ASRock motherboards.

And I only plan on doing a mild overclock with my CPU. I would be happy with something in the 4.0GHz range.

I think I may go with the Z77 Pro4 for the extra Sata ports. I think that may prove useful in the future.

Thanks for the advice. You've been a great help.
