I'm not sure how much the chipset matters really... Most chipsets have similar features these days. Seems like all of the current ones have USB3, 6Gb/s SATA, and a decent number of PCIe lanes, so segmenting different chipsets into different markets doesn't have much technical purpose to it. The specific board being used will probably affect OCing and stability more than the chipset its self will.
That being said... if you are going to start overclocking you might want to replace that board anyway. Overclocking isn't really my deal, but ASrock is sort of on the cheap side which usually doesn't help once you start tweaking things in order to squeeze out every last drop.
Do not meddle in the affairs of archers, for they are subtle and quick to anger.
