Have all the parts on hand or otw for my next build and just have to pick up a i5-3570k and mobo combo from MC when I get the time to make the trip.

Looking at these five mobos:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ASRock Z77 Pro4 ATX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ASUS P8Z77-V LK ATX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ASRock Z77 Extreme6 ATX

Don't want a microATX board and would like to keep the cpu/mobo combo price around or under $300. Will be looking to run the cpu around 4.5GHz but I always like to try to see if I can get a stable 5.0GHz just for kicks.

Other parts of the build are:G Skill 1600Mhz 8GB memory, HD 7870, Crucial M4 128 SSD, OCZ 750W PSU, Rosewill Thor Case, and a Corsair A70 cpu cooler

Any opinions or experience with any of the above boards is appreciated, thanks!

I would have told you not to get an OCZ PSU but you've ordered it already so oh well.

I say get the extreme4.
