Hello guys. I am about to get a 990FX chipset motherboard and I would appreciate your opinion in this matter. I am currently thinking about getting one of these two motherboards. I want to overclock a fx8320 on it. If you have better suggestions for the similar price, they are welcome.

So which motherboard should I get and why?

Asus.

The VRMs on the UD3 overheat, throttle, and warp the board. If you put a dedicated fan on them they might not overheat. Or maybe they will anyway.

Thanks for this info, I had no idea about this issue.
