    i really like the Pro version of ASRock, it got great reviews. the Extreme 7 is out of te contest because of the bad reviews on newegg stating DOA and problems with it. but i also like the ASUS.
    But I don't really trust newest reviews that much, what do you think? Is the extreme a better motherboard overall?

    ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 and ASRock Z68 PROFESSIONAL GEN3 don't have much difference. They are both good mobo. I prefer to choose ASRock Pro. Also this one is cheaper.

    I just thought to share this one
