No that board will not overclock. I would purchase the ASRock or Gigabyte Z68 or Z77 LGA 1155.

As wingman stated, it won't allow overclocking for any realistic gains.

If you can find an older Z77 board that'd be what you'd be looking for, but you'll only realistically find them used.

You'll want a chipset with the "Z" specification for overclocking such as Z68 or Z77

The MSI B75MA-E33 will support multiplier overclocking. https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B75MA-E33.html#down-manual
What about a P67 board ?
The old P67 motherboard will support multiplier overclocking.
If you want to overclock your Sandy Bridge, you need a P67 motherboard. http://www.anandtech.com/show/4083/...-core-i7-2600k-i5-2500k-core-i3-2100-tested/4

Intel changed things :sly: on the newer generations of motherboards so it is confusing.
