You worded that a bit unclearly.

Are you asking about whether a motherboard's chipset could reduce the effectiveness of a GPU overclock? More specifically, whether there is a different between Z97, H97 and H87?
If that's the question; no.

Your chipset does not affect video performance unless the chipset does not provide enough PCIe bandwidth (which is never a problem with single GPU setups). However, some GPU setups will be bottlenecked by the processor, which can be sped up by overclocking; many chipsets do not let you overclock.
