I've heard that board has chipset cooling problems.

I'd also look at finding a 1.5v kit of memory.

That is a H67 motherboard, you want a P67 or Z68 if you plan on overclocking without a limit. Max you will be able to go is 3.7-3.8ghz I believe.

Dont get either of those boards. The Gigabyte you ordered can NOT overclock. It is an H67 board. You need a P67 board to overclock.

The board you want is the Asus P8P67. Get either the standard or the Pro model depending on your budget.

I have the P8P67 Pro with a 2500k and can overclock to 5ghz no problem. I run it 24/7 at 4.5ghz at 1.28v rock stable.
