Asus has a habit of making very overclock friendly products. It is just their thing and I suppose they simply cannot help themselves.
Recently at the Futuremark sponsored OverclocKing competition Asus got a chance to show off what their present and future products can do. Futuremark picked Asus as the recommended product for the competitors and the Asus Striker II Extreme seemed to steal the show with some very impressive numbers.

As the recommended competition hardware for the Futuremark® OverclocKing 2008, a smorgasbord of ASUS motherboards were used throughout the competition. Amongst them, the ASUS Striker II Extreme managed to post performance scores close to the latest range of motherboards from ASUS that support the newest Intel® Core i7 Extreme processor. The ASUS Striker II Extreme went on to lead a field that included the ASUS P5Q PRO, ASUS Rampage Formula, ASUS P5Q, and the ASUS P5Q Deluxe. This not only demonstrated the superior overclocking potential of all current ASUS motherboards, but also provided a glimpse of the limitless possibilities and extreme performance that future ASUS hardware can provide to end-users.
