It looks like a pretty good deal, it has good reviews. Since the processor is a BE the motherboard matters less when O/Cing, you shouldn't worry.

If you plan on pushing the CPU as high as possible and keeping it there for daily use, think of cooling the MOSFET part of the board. They aren't designed for very high power, so they need additional cooling when OCing.
