I think Micro Center is doing an $80 off any mobo if you buy a Proc too...
It won't overclock. There are really only two boards that will overclock. Either pick one of those or forgo overclocking.

Yes. The AsRock doesn't have on-board wifi though.

Before we move out of the BIOS, though, we just need to cover the OC Tweaker section a little. You may have noticed that when it comes to voltage we're a bit limited with the lack of ability to adjust CPU voltage. The Z68M-ITX HT is far from an overclockers board, what it offers over the H67 chipset, though, is the ability to adjust the multiplier.

So no voltage tweaking on the Asrock offering but they did get it to 4.09Ghz on stock voltages.
Price: $119.99 (Newegg)



In contrast, the Zotac board has Voltage options... (barely ). Bios is horrible though. On the other hand, it was able to get almost to 4.5 (4.49).

Price: 169.99 (Newegg)

Really it is up to you. Zotac is more feature packed but is more expensive and has some issues among a lot of people.
