it sounds like you pretty much have your choice made. i have had 2 Asus MB's because my friend had it when i went to build mine and it was a solid board then i replaced it with another asus. my roommate had a Gigabyte board and it seem solid as well. if one board suits your fancy more than the other, they are both reputable brands.

it's 50/50 actually, it seams that asus sabertooth is better for overclocking. i am missing two 3-pin fan headers on the sabertooth since antec kuhler 920 uses one 3 pin and it's good two have two(one of mine burnen).

It kept the multiplier at AUTO(16.5) but bumped the FSB to 233 for an effective rate of 3844. Are your settings 20 multiplier x 200FSB or some other combo?

Avoid auto OC from BIOS :-)

Multi to 20 with 200 HT is my setup.
If you don't plan running RAM over 1600 MHz, it's easier just to up multi.
One looses CnQ but K10stat comes to rescue :-)

Try 705 BIOS as it requires less volts for equal clock.

Nothing wrong with FSB ocing, but haven't done it since I have troubles running 16GB at 8-8-8 1T over 1800 MHz.

Edit:
I've done somewhat interesting SATA/RAID testing ...
Don't have time to write all info now, but long story short:
705 BIOS, RAID 5 and 1 tested.
avoid running SB950 in any kind of RAID mode.
For SSD's AHCI is faster than IDE,
for disks it is slower until AMD AHCI drivers are installed.
JMicron controller runs faster without drivers installed.

i am note a huge fan over the layout pci-e layout that these boards uses but i can live with that. i like the all black design ud3 uses and i actually prefer the old school bios layout gigabyte uses. the gigabyte board is also slightly cheaper.
most motherboards seams to has internal serial port(even if the specs at a Swedish store told otherwise). since my current motherboard has a broken fan header i might get the new board for just the price difference compared to the old.

Well, I've used 790XTA-UD4P board before and I really liked it. Had a X2 550 unlocked to X4 and 1090T running.
The board doesn't have such fine voltage adjustment like Sabertooth, but voltage doesn't fluctuate.

All in all, I'm pleased with new board.
Has some quirks, but BIOS options, fan headers, SATA performance, BD/PD support (hopefully). etc make up for it :-)

Had two ASUS boards before: P6T Deluxe and MA79T Deluxe.
Both died the same way with same symptoms and I've told myself: "Asus never again".
Yet here I am ...

it's seams that ga-990fxa-ud3 is a more reliable board than asus sabertooth after reading reviews on newegg and amazon etc. still asus sabertooth seams to work for most people. i am currently 70% sure ill get the ud3 but i think i will try to get rev 1.1 or 1.2 since 1.0 lacks llc adjustment.

it doesn't seams to exict a really good am3+ board currently but i am happy if it works fine and overclocks better than my current board. i can live without quad sli/cf in 8x speed of 50mhz migher oc, and since the future of am3+ is unsure i don't wan't to spend to much money on a am3+ board unless i really get value for it.

just a fyi the sabertooth in testing runs on par with the UD7 and GD80 boards
