I'm kinda anti-AsRock ...bad RMA..blew up a couple boards..(My fault..I juiced the snot out of them)(4+1 phase).but in this case..I would recommend the AsRock 16-phase board.
or one of the top three here:

Asrock P67 Extreme6, would be my choice of those 3. I love my p67 extreme4, had it since August '11, and have had zero issues with it, I've had 3 different SandyBridge CPU's in it, and they have all OC'd 4.8ghz+

I was glad to see my Extreme4 get an update for Ivy Bridge CPU's as well, the Extreme6 did too.

Is this ASUS board ok ? 140 euros is the max i can afford on that pricewatch.
If you guys say it is a go it is a go for me.
I have a Corsair H60:
3-pin
+ fan 4-pin
Will my H60 pumps have to run maxed out all the time? I know I can control 3-pin fan speeds with AsRock... So I need to be sure I can do that on this board too.
Mobo is great choice, H60 is good but listen for rattling noise from pump at certain rpm. May have to use controller or direct hookup to molex connector.thumb.gif

I won't buy Ivy Bridge... Just need a replacement for my current board. Are the Gigabytes ok? That Asrock board is supposed to be one of their best P67 boards so it should be ok...

I think you're not aware that Z77 motherboards are compatible with Sandy Bridge. In fact, many people are saying their SB CPUs overclock better on Z77 motherboards.

Also, you get native USB 3.0.

When one day you want to sell your motherboard, it will be worth more than a P67 or Z68 based motherboard.

This. I'd get a z77 board over any of the boards you listed.

I'm sorry really if I'm going horribly off-topic here but, I don't get the hate on AsRock. They make perfectly solid boards, and have incredibly good prices. And of course, EVERYONE has experienced horrible RMA with any manufacturer (that's almost a given), it's just a matter of luck. Not to mention that AsRock is basically ASUS's budget brand.
