ASUS F2A85-V Pro Motherboard did a good job ,the features on board like the DIGI+ helps to make the motherboard perform much better in overclocking and Stability.

things extra i liked is the Remote GO! which links the Motherboard to your Tablet ( for Example) and use it to remote desktop , File transfer and DLNA Hub.

Overclocking wise, I managed to Spend some time in overclocking the CPU and Cooling it the Motherboard parts in a proper way to be able to achieve the highest stable

overclocking for this budget type Motherboard and AMD APU and I would say seeing it running at 4.63GHz @ 1.56v VCore is a great job indeed.
