Any Z-series motherboard (with the exception right now of Gigabyte's Z68 boards) with a decent set of voltage regulation chips can overclock a K series processor. You never gave us the use for the board, especially whether you'll overclock or not.

I'm not familiar with the other brands, but I can recommend the Intel if you are NOT overclocking. My P67 Intel board, although 1 generation older, really doesn't overclock well, and as the Tom's review shows, overclocking is a second thought to Intel motherboard designers, despite the advertising.
