i love my GA-Z77X-UP5 TH i just installed. was shocked at the boot times which are halved of what my GB z68 did. havernt really tried to overclock on it yet
other boards i would look at are the GA-Z77X-UP4 TH, Gigabyte z77-ud5h, Gigabyte z77-ud3h, Gigabyte z77-ud3.
MSI Z77 MPower
from asrock z77extreme 6 or better as they seemed to have dropped the ball on the z77 extreme 4.
asus: p8z77v, pro or deluxe. ROG borads if you want to use 3 gpus with the exception of the gene-z which is still a nice board especially for mATX
