    You should go with the Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 as it has got Auto tuning , turbo V, GPU boost, TPU switch. So I will suggest you to go with this mobo.

    As using Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 motherboard personally I would say that the reason you should go with this board are

    BIOS which works crashfree
    Overclocking is good
    UEFI BIOS is awesum

    And so it is better you go with the Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 and if you are looking for the extra ports then you can go with the pro version otherwise this board is alos good option for buying.

    I have been using the ASRock Z68 Extreme4 GEN 3 motherboard as using this board I must say that design of this board for the heatsink is slightly clumsy. And the performance of this board is also not up to mark.

    According to me the plus point why one should opt for the ASUS is that it comes with the Intel NIC which is used for the LAN. And apart from the NIC it also has got 2 SATA ports. so try buying the ASUS rather than the ASRock as the overall performance is best of this motherboard and I have been using this brand from over past three years and never got any type of issues.
