Good motherboard for overclocking?

At the moment, I'm seriously debating between the i5 3570k and the i7 3770 cpus, but I also need to find a good motherboard that I can overclock well with. This is what I've been doing so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Xodom/saved/1CLe and http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Xodom/saved/1D9D Can you guys suggest one of the two? or maybe one that's better? I plan to play games such as Bioshock Infinite and Battlefield and other such games, and I plan to play games as they come out. Also need the build for rendering/editing videos and possibly 3D-modeling (CAD and such). Help?

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-rampageivextreme best board for overclocking out there. only problem is it's a lga 2011 socket. I suggest moving up to 3930k processor. More horsepower and better overclocking plus it works with the ivextreme. If you really don't want to change the processor then this should work: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-maximusvextreme this is the lga 1155 variant of the rampag iv so its still really good.
