If you're thinking of overclocking, remember that you shouldn't overclock what you can't afford to replace.

I did read it, but guessed that because thrashzone has a K himself, he would know what mobo's are able to overclock..
So final choice, hope i dont get it wrong this time... Going for the msi z170

So your saying its dangerous and you can easily damage the cpu? Ive read alot of sites and they say theres a very low chance of damaging your cpu.. Thats only when you go into extreme overclocking.

Yep oc'ing is pretty wild stuff,
I mentioned AI Suite 3 for the ASUS board which has many modes for sort of safely oc'ing from default configurations
That was discounted for a lack of the version and the options you'd see in the B150 version opposed to the one I would see if I actually used it
But it did have a gaming mode/ extreme mode and a few other ones I never tried personally

MSI might have a utility similar to asus's ai suite 3 I have not checked :/

Intel cpu's also have a neat little utility one could use if desired which again I have not used this either
I did use ai suite 3 briefly

How did you go about overclocking and when you did it for your first time what was it like?

I personally have only use the "EZ tuning wizard" shown on the top rightish which makes it a lot easier and safer to get a little more performance

Yea MSI has some good stuff I was looking at some pretty wild laptops they have
At least the MSI is just under the budget price but seeing the total so far hopefully doable for you
To me everything looks okay.
