I like my motherboards sexy. Gives an overall good looking to the build and i can masturbate to it.

That motherboard in particular, its all black so i cant see how you go wrong, black looks always good.

Oh ok. Well it will do everthing you need. The only question i have is how good will it overclock the cpu, but im sure you can get the average 4.4-4.6ghz on the 3570k with that mobo just fine. The ram, fine. The gpu fine. Unless you want to go multi gpu in the future, that mobo is a solid choice and performer.
Hell, i can get 4.4 with the same cpu on my "LE(Low end)" motherboard so youre fine.

Enjoy it.

Yes, but most of us won't use the Z77 Pro3 in a system we intend to overclock. We opt for the Z77 Extreme4, Extreme6 or Extreme9 if we intend to overclock.

Almost all the major motherboard brands have equal quality motherboards these days, each one offering their own unique gimmicks to sell:

Asrock: Xfast USB, Xlan
ASUS: USB3 Boost, FAN XPERT
Gigabyte: Dual BIOS, Ultra durable
etc.

The trusted brands are ASUS, Asrock, Gigabyte, MSI, Intel and eVGA. These are brands that you know will give you a fully working motherboard out of the box. It's worth paying a few extra dollars over a budget brand for that kind of security.

Well 3/5 ain't bad....

Fwiw Intel won't be making any more boards after Haswell.

That's nonsense.

With my Z77 Pro4, I have been able to oc my 2500k to oc 4.6ghz without even changing the voltage. And have been able to easily get to 4.8ghz with some minor voltage.

The Asrock non-extreme boards oc just fine.

Most people would not use the P8Z77v le in a system that is meant to over clock would go strait for the V-PRO one deluxe but some still OC on the LE he should still be able to hit say 4.2-4.4 area with no problems.

Didnt you read the review link I posted? The Z77 Pro3's OC:



And where they conclude that it...

"...overclocked just as good as any other Z77 board that we have ever used at any price point. The price versus performance proposition is strong in this board!"

ASRock is more popular than MSI....

1. Asus
2. Gigabyte
3. ASRock
4. MSI

That's their order for sales.... ASRock is #3 in the world in sales. They passed MSI last year.
