The chipset is what determines overclocking. For the Intel K series CPUs it is the Z97 chipset that you need to be able to overclock. That board will allow you to overclock decently and probably easily hit 4GHz.

As well make sure you get a really good after market cooler for the CPU to avoid any issues with heat.
