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 compared some of the features between this two boards:

ASRock Z68 Extreme4 GEN 3 :

1) Provide connector for the floppy drive
2) Comes with the PLX chip
3) THX Turestudio is supported on this board
4) Has got individual power for the graphics card
5) Supports USB 3.0 controller

Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 :

1) Has got Intel NIC card
2) Has got support for the Bluetooth
3) Supports USB 3.0 controller
4) DTS surround

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.
