Right now I have a asus z87 plus. I have my 4770k overclocked to 4.6 right now. I am looking at getting either the maximus extreme or formula. Down the road I want to switch to watercooling my 780 tis when I am feeling brave. Plus I want to overclock my 4770k more if I can. Which would benefit me more? Thanks in advance for any helpful feedback

It won't help with OCing since the VRM is located on the CPU die, not the mobo. If the new mobo has features you want/need that you don't currently have, then it might be something to look into.

Correct me if I am wrong. I thought some motherboards were better with overclocking than others. I can get my cpu up to 4.8 but its not stable at all. Plus I haven't messed with the voltage at all. The main reason I was looking at the extreme was the feature it had to overclock itself.
