EDIT: Its also compatible with SLI

Too many other upgrades needed with that.

More power phases means a more stable overclock, as it can feed the cpu with more power. Refer to this thread.

Both of those look to be a 4+1 setup. I'm going to say I wouldn't touch any board that doesn't have any heat sinks on the power regulators if was I planing on overclocking.

The ECS & MSI are 3+1 in that link and the Gigabyte is a 4+1. both are low on the quality scale and I can't recommend for higher TDP processors. You can also check the "AMD Motherboard VRM Information" thread (see sig) for a reference list of VRM info per board.
