It's going to be ok, unless you want to take things to the extremes go for extreme clocks and voltages. But I suppose you simply want a mild overclock on your i5.

Also gaming wise, you don't need anything more.. You have a "good" audio solution and dual intel NICs

I always use ASUS boards because they are very reliable but I may venture in to EVGA in the future
