What would be a good and cheap motherboard for i5 8600k overclock?

I am going to buy an i5 8600k and pair it with a dark rock pro 4 and hope to overclock it to at least 4,8 ghz. I am thinking about getting the msi z370-a pro because it seems like such a good board for the 100€ price. Do you guys know if it is a good board for overclocking and not overheating or should I get something else?
 
That board is probably a good option, but how does the price of an 8600K and dark rock pro compare to say a non K i7 8700 or 9700 ?
Just suggesting that maybe stepping up to a faster CPU on stock cooling might not be significantly different in price than ocerclocking a cheaper CPU.

Or get a Ryzen 2600X/2700X and use the stock cooler. :) The only reason too be overclocking any current CPU is if you are after very high framerates on a 120/144 hz monitor, otherwise why bother?

I have watched many performance comparisons, and the i5-8600k is basically equal to the i7-8700k in gaming, and I will not be doing anything else than gaming on this pc. And also I do have a 144hz monitor.
