Gigabyte never really supported overclocking, their BIOS doesn't offer 1Mhz FSB adjustments. Epox is a bit better, but not as good as Abit or Asus, Abit is the best for OCing, Asus is very close.

MSI is better than Gigabyte or Epox in terms of quality, and they offer more overclocking features too.
