The Supermicro C7P67 MoBo works with an i7-2600k (or any other i3, i5, or i7 desktop processor). The MoBo fits in any 1155 socket-compatible chassis. We use a Supermicro 732D4-500B chassis. We run SBS 2011 Standard on the Server. The server perform very well w/o overclocking, but can be overclocked w/o a problem, whatsoever, to up to 4.2. GHz.
