You have great taste for mobo's, though your processor is actually not overclockalbe so I would suggest to go with a basic H77 board if you won't overclock but if you would change your processor with 3570k

Ok, i'll probably go with getting the 3570k. Thanks for the feedback.

No problem, btw if you would be overclocking I would suggest get the hyper 212 to replace the stock cooler.
