the asus board might be superior in overclocking if you are trying to achieve 6 - 7ghz, but with only 5ghz? asrock can handle that just fine.

I don't know what kind of VRM design / components they use on their ITX boards, but if it's anywhere near that of the Z77 Pro3 which is notorious for coming apart fairly quickly, i would be gentle with overclocking.

Was just a question. What if you put a E3 1220 V2 , the Gigabyte will be a better option right?

I seriously doubt you'll get >5GHz stable even with water, no matter what mobo.

Unless I missed it, you didn't mention what cpu your rig will have, but i'll assume ivy bridge. Even under water, ivy just can't really go above 5GHz. Even then, you'll need to be lucky and have a 'golden chip'. >5GHz you hit a point where taking heat away from the cpu doesn't help, you have to actually cool down the cpu actively with liquid nitrogen or phase change. IMO the difference between the asrock and the asus is basically color scheme and price. If you like some blue go asus lol, but don't dream about >5GHz with either board even under water.

If you do get the asrock and find that your cooling enables to you overclock to a point of instability on the asrock board, please post a thread about it, because out of the hundreds who own this board you'd be the first.

Ah checked your sig, see the 3770k in there,

well good luck with 5GHz lol, 'maybe' if you disable hyper-threading but that'd negate the purpose of buying that cpu.
