Steamroller will use AM3+ mobo

What I was saying was that you will not be able to use your current board with Steamroller CPU (125W) and OC it as you are having problems with your fx6300 already, so you need to purchase a mobo anyway. Was just replying to your post

"I'm not sure if I should try and overclock with my current board, give up on overclocking and just upgrade to Steamroller when it comes out, or upgrade to a 990FX board like an Asus Sabretooth or ASRock 990FX Extreme4."

I just used the VRM database on here and it says that my mobo can support up to 140w. So if I get a Steamroller CPU I can use it without overclocking. Right now I'm debating whether or not to upgrade to steamroller on my current mobo, or buy a new board and over clock my FX-6300.

If you don't overclock it you are missing out on all the extra performance you will gain. You are better to have a motherboard that you can overclock with and later on down the line purchase the Steamroller CPU if needed.

Alright I think I've decided what I'll do. I'll upgrade the video card to a 8970/9970 (whatever AMD calls their top-end card) next year, then I'll upgrade the motherboard to an Asus Sabretooth 990FX R2.0 and overclock my FX-6300 and maybe upgrade to Steamroller and overclock that if an overclocked FX-6300 isn't cutting it. Yeah I'll put off overclocking until I get the money for a good board. I'm content with my CPU's performance right now, I just want to overclock it for futureproofing. Then again one of my Steam friends is gaming on a Phenom 2 X6 at stock speed and he seems to be able to play games just fine, then again he has two 6950s in crossfire.
