    I just want to overclock to a little over 4000, I'm wanting to know what board is the most stable to do this with.

    I think pretty much any P67 or Z68 board will do that. So find the one with the features you want in your price range and go with it.

    Looks like a great choice. Plenty of CPU power phases to reach 4.2-4.5 pretty easily with a good cooler. YMMV, as always though.

    ^+1 good cooler
    + good RAM will give room for more advanced choices

    All P67 and Z68 boards would do 4.0GHz, quite possibly even the Z68 ITX boards. It's with 4.3GHz where some starts to become unstable.
