No it isn't, because it currently costs $85, and $70 after a rebate.
Anyway, how is this board?

Even though the game runs in 720p, it produces another 480p stream for the New Controller. That's like 1200p!

that's better for overclocking sans explosion, but this board is $5 more and is in a whole other tier: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138355

Oh, nice, Z77. I didn't think there'd be one that cheap, so I was hunting for z68/p67 boards on sale.

^yea that one is usually $125-$130. at $109.99 I'm tempted to buy one for myself for no reason. that's the board that has effectively replaced the asrock extreme 3 gen 3 as the best bang for buck intel motherboard.

It doesn't mention anything about the unlocked multiplier, so it's pretty likely it's just a copypasta of their component quality advertisement.

Damn, I sorta wish I was proven wrong about the TZ68K+ being not good for overclocking, cause I have it lol.

60sec mentioned that it VRMs are bad, so does there happen to be a quick read on VRMs that explain how to tell really quickly if a mobo has bad ones?
i3-2120 || HD 6870 || CX430 || NZXT S210E
TZ68K+ (lol) || 12GB ddr3 (lol x2) || 2x 80GB hdd (ssjlol3)

^ it's the type of vrms and the amount. you don't want a board with less than 10 power phases, especially low end vrms, because it will limit overclocking, won't hold a stable overclock and worse case scenario, explode.

Not really, though if it has digital VRMs, that's usually a good sign that they aren't bad.
Also, something with a 4 or 6 phase power design and analogue VRMs is going to be bad for anything but budget builds.
