Asrock z77 EXTREME 4

or

Asrock z75 Pro 3



What I'm using is a 120gb ssd, optical drive, 2tb hdd, NOT using sli or crossfire, I WANT TO OVERCLOCK MY I5 3570K!!!

Help me which is better for me? I want to know if the pro3 is good at overclocking.

Also, any advice I would need with the Pro 3 or EXTREME 4.

Z77 if you want to overclock, better power phases, better HFS on critical parts, overall better board.

DS3H has voltage lock. You can't have cheap and good right now that most LGA1155 are out of production.

Both ASRock boards you listed aren't spectacular either.
