My Pro3 Mobo was faulty and ebuyer has offered me the chance to change which mobo i want to buy. I am wondering whether to upgrade to the Extreme4 for £40 extra? I can't see any clear reason to do so looking at the Extreme4s features?

Anybody want to advise one over the other? Give reason why? (I have a tight amount of cash so I am reluctant to upgrade unless there is something screamingly obvious that I will be missing out on)

The Pro3 is fine. Though i'd suggest getting a Gigabyte or Asus if you can as they're more reliable. What CPU are you using?

I have looked at the equivalent Gigabyte and Asus boards but they just don't cut it for me. For example, the Gigabyte board doesn't support changing the v-core so limits Overclocking hugely. I am using an i5-3570k.

I think the gigabyte board you're looking at is the DS3H if i'm correct.
The Ga-Z77-DH3 or P8Z77-V LX would both be good buys as they are among the best price/performance boards for overclocking. My experience with AsRock boards is that they are unreliable and many reviews say so too (yours has crapped out).
