It's a great board for overclocking. Are there better boards out there for the same money? Sure, but I bought my Sabertooth because it has decent VRM, the features I needed/wanted, and looked good while doing it. I've managed a 24/7 stable 4.5GHz overclock on my i5 3570K and haven't had any trouble with it.

Shaun, this is the best Ivy Bridge overclocking guide on the web right now in my opinion. Give it a read, and check here again if you have some more questions. Good luck! I got to 4.5 stable no problem on my 3570K.
