my 1156 mobo died the other day and I can't find a reasonably priced 1156 GOOD board, so I decided it was time to upgrade to 1155 (about time don't you say). I bought a z77-ds3h for 50$ and a 3570k for 190$ from microcenter. But now Im considering taking the z77 board back and picking up a better overclocker, this one you cannot adjust vcore in bios which won't ever let me break 4.4ghz stable. I am debating between these 2 boards, which would you guys suggest.

UD3H's VRM is better. Extreme6 has issues with reporting actual vcore, but as long as you use multimeter or know precisely how of it is, it's OK. Saying that it's $141 on Newegg with free RAM.

Also I've heard good things about hackintosh and GB, and not sure about ASRock.

awesome man pretty much exactly what I wanted to know. And yes for anyone that wants the hackintosh know how, the UEFI in GA z77 boards requires no DSDT at all on your part, so booting into os x could NOT be easier. I will go with the GA since it is better for both oc and hackintosh, thank you lots.
