doesn't have to be orange and black just something with not too many other colours eg anything with is mainly black. Might have to have a bit of a rethink on colours. Other than being a tad overpriced what do people think of the OC board

Yeah let's not post misinformation to dissuade people from purchasing quality products. You obviously don't own any ASRock products or have.

The only board that uses less than ideal VRMs and MOSFETS by ASRock is the Z77 Extreme4 and a couple of their other lower end motherboards. However, none of this translates to lesser overclocks as many members on this forum have proven using the Z77 Extreme4. Who have no problem hitting 4.8-5GHz daily overclocks without any issues. So using blanket statements that "they use really sucky VRM's" gives people the impression that all of their products use lesser quality VRM's and this is simply untrue. It's actually a straight out lie. You can even see for yourself, which products by them use D-PAK mosfets and which have a less than desirable rating: http://sinhardware.com/images/vrmlist.png

ASRock makes high quality motherboards, that overclock really well, cannot be beat for their price to performance, provide many extra features and has one of the most easily navigable UEFI out there. Advising people against ASRock especially a user who is on a tight budget is simply nonsensical. Just because you prefer a specific brand, doesn't necessarily make it right to tell someone to not use another brand because of "things you heard."

OP if you are looking for a nice Z87 board on a budget an ASRock Z87 Extreme4 or Extreme6 will be more than adequate for your needs.

I see you have an ASRock board... yeah ok I know why you're defending them.

They still suck.

Yeah, they are awesome boards...

You find one random old thread, from one of their lower end boards and that's your conclusion? How about this then if we are going to play troll games;

Don't buy Gigabyte or ASUS either, their boards catch on fire so they are obviously crap too.

Please, stop spewing misinformation it's bad for the industry. You have no idea what you are talking about. Do you even own your own rig or do you post your bull**** nonsense on some crap laptop?

I'm defending them because you're an idiot. Not because I own their products.

Just sit back and eat some popcorns, do you still have any questions?

Pretty much narrowed it down to either one of the asrock extreme boards or the gigabyte OC as I can't find any others that are going to fit in (unless anyone knows of any z87 boards where the colour parts of the heatsink can be removed like adi518 did in the define project). I've done a bit of looking around and from what i can see the ASrocks are more suited to my needs as I won't be doing any extreme overclocking (will just be getting whatever I can out of it with my H100i) which renders many of the features on the OC useless. Also the inbuilt wifi on the extreme 6 is very appealing. I can't find any links of the lower quality VRMs actually hindering performance or causing issues with this particular board so I'll likely go with this unless anyone can provide evidence?

I cannot provide evidence against the VRM's, though from experience my friend's AsRock Mobo was very thin compared to my Gigabyte mobo. I just cringe at the thought of if he had put a little too much pressure on it.
