    What do you guys think about this motherboard? Good reputation? I have the AM3+ Extreme 3 at the moment, its okay but its a flimsy board, the power phase isn't really optimal for overclocking, and a few other annoyances. I want to switch to an intel i5 3570. The Z77 Extreme 4 is $85 at microcenter with purchase of the i5 at $189. Any thoughts? Other options include the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H and the ASRock Z77 Pro4

    its good board..,my friend bought it few days ago...that board can clock that i5 for at least 4.2ghz!!
    if that is not enough for u u must get extreme 6 or any board in that range..
    those are great prices... i totaly recomend to buy that combo!! :)

    Thanks for the tips. I ended up going with a gigabyte ud3h, was the same price, I just didn't see it on the listing.

    It's a very good mobo for the $. I have the Z68 Extreme3, which is pretty much the same board, and have no issues at all running 4.5 GHz+ under fairly heavy loads.
