  1. How much do you want to spend ?
  2. And is CrossFireX, SLI, SATA III or USB 3.0 a requirement?
  3. Gigabyte mobo's FTW. even the basic models have loads of overclocking features. Make sure you get a mobo with options in the BIOS for tweaking the voltages to your chipset, CPU and RAM, as well as the clock frequencies, or else you will only be able to overclock so far, then you will just crash.
  4. I like Gigabyte motherboards, a lot of other people like ASUS. They are both quality, reputable brands.

    I'm very new to overclocking the "i" processors. I've built 3 machines using Gigabyte motherboards and i5-750's. I managed to get between 3.8 and 3.9 GHz to stay stable in stress testing on all 3, and I didn't spend a lot of time adjusting settings. All 3 of those machines were for our office so I set them down to 3.5GHz and they run 24/7.
