I'm currently running mine in a MSI H81M-P33 motherboard, but there are several inexpensive enthusiast boards on the market right now that will let you overclock this successfully. Most of the H81 chipset boards have either built-in tuning, or a BIOS firmware is available that will let you. You could also go with a Z97 if you wanted to spend more money, but really those should be saved for builds with a larger budget.
I'm at 4.5 ghz at 1.24v, and under load (Intel Burn Test, Prime95, etc.) and a Cooler Master 212 Evo haven't seen sustained temps past 70 C in a rather warm room in the Florida summer. Compare that to the next unlocked processor available right now, the i5-4690K, which retails for ~$240 and can be overclocked to similar levels. Granted, you're not getting as many cores or threads, but lots of current games (Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program, etc.) will only use a single core anyhow. This one is the best bang-for-buck one available right now, especially for a machine that would be a console replacement or SteamBox clone.
Will it beat an i5? In raw terms: no. But in a single core fist fight? You betcha. And it'll do it a heck of a lot cheaper.
It's low power and easily overclock-able. I was able to push it 4.7 GHZ at 1.3V on air with temps never exceeding 70 C. I was using a low-profile Noctua CPU cooler. But I wasn't able to go past about 4.8, even with over 1.6V! Even at 4.7 it is still a huge performance increase basically for free.
In conclusion, this is THE chip to buy at this price point. AMD cpu's don't even hold a candle to this sweet chip. Single core performance is second to none!
I have overclocked it to 4.2 ghz at 1.2 volts. It runs at 30 degrees C or less when idle, and gets in the 40's low 50's when gaming. Those were the first settings I tried. I could probably back off the voltage, but it is stable as hell right now and the temps are great. This is on the stock Intel fan. I cranked it up to 4.4 ghz at 1.25 volts and booted with temps in the high 30's but it BSOD on me after a couple of minutes. I'm thinking that I could get 4.5 with close to 1.3 volts but heat might be a problem, and there is no need with the games I am running at the moment.
It runs Rise of the Tomb Raider with no problems, the limitations are the GPU, but I'm getting 35+ fps with textures and shadows on medium at 1080p. I can also keep textures at high and drop the resolution slightly and allow my HDTV to upsample, to 1080p, and get the same results. Limitations in this game are largely GPU VRAM based. Running Geforce Experience optimization allows for 45-60 fps on this game at 900p with this CPU @4,2 ghz.
4.2 is an easy OC with this chip unless you are really unlucky with the silicon lottery.
Works wonderfully with paired with an SSD. My initial build had a generic HDD and the performance was not the best, although I know this is partially the hard drives fault.
That said, when you get this paired with an SSD the thing flies. I primarily use it for streaming video, PVR, HTPC. I have the system paired with a EVGA 750ti Superclocked Video Card and although have only played a few games and non-graphic heavy games,the processor doesn't seem to have any trouble keeping up.
If you need a processor for light computing, low power, cheap build give it a whirl.
I'd also check out NewEgg as they have a lot of combo deals with MOBOs or memory for this processor. You can almost certainly find it cheaper somewhere else and still get free shipping and no tax.

Now i updated BIOS of Asrock Pro3 motherboard it doesn't overclock CPU, it is stuck at 3.2Ghz, instead, memory overclocks to 1400Mhz.
Problem with Windows 10 overclocking due to update KB3064209, somekind of microcode for what reason? Windows 10 installed at 3.2Ghz
I plays 2K video but not 4K HD video
Il processore è adatto all'overclock ma personalmente non ne sento il bisogno dal momento che anche lavorando alla sua frequenza nativa, riesce perfettamente a gestire a risoluzione full HD programmi professionali di montaggio video e grafica molto pesanti, come ad esempio adobe cs6.
