My 4930K finally arrived today. I need to take some time doing final minute back ups before I put together my new PC, but soon I'll be able to play around with my new CPU. I'm looking forward to see how well I can overclock this thing.

4930K is not designed to be over-clocked. Even it's design was change, which moves away from OC.
It's too small to keep cool properly with current cooling methods.

For reference, Haswells running at 3.9 are suppose to match OC's at 4.5 in performance.

The best OC is the 2500, which I've read people pushed to around 6-7.0ish with some extremely expensive cooling.

Even so, I'm looking forward to messing around with it a bit.

Why are we talking about Haswell? The 4930K is an Ivy Bridge-E CPU. It overclocks fine.

I guess it came out today? I got to order mine now. But which motherboard should I get?

My prediction is that you're going to have the same problem with any X79 motherboard: they require a BIOS update in order to support the new CPUs, and it's likely that none of the current stock has the correct BIOS version, so until that stock is depleted, any motherboard you order may well not work with an Ivy Bridge-E CPU, so you would need a Sandy Bridge-E CPU to start the computer, flash the BIOS, remove the SB-E and install the IB-E instead.
But I haven't read any discussions on that topic yet, so perhaps I'm wrong.

A fully unlocked processor with a soldered IHS is not meant to be overclocked. Please go on and tell us how you know better than Intel engineers.

I know some Asus boards have a cool feature where you don't need a CPU to update the BIOS. You just need PSU power and a flash drive. Well, I'm off to put everything together now.
