That board makes absolutely no sense with that CPU, or just in general. A "gaming/enthusiast" non overclocking board with an overclocking CPU.

I agree with the above. Lower the CPU, get an eVGA 760, and get the Extreme3 for the same money. Least then you can upgrade later to something that overclocks and have the ability.
