Both boards are capable of overclocking. The gigabyte has better power phasing at 8+2 vs the 6+2 of the asus. That is a plus for the gigabyte.
I own an Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0. I had an FX9590 on it and it ran great. The board is rated to accept the FX 9590.I have not used the gigabyte But knowing what I know about overclocking and Vrm power phase I believe that is a major factor. Gigabytes are good boards Your best choice may very well be the Gigabyte. That is because of the better power phase.

thank you for the information.

Some people say that gigabyte have any problems with some memories modules. Is it so?

Not sure. But that could be true.

You can check on their memory support list:

In that price range I have tested the 990FXA-UD3 rev 4.0 ,the M5A99FX pro 2.0 and the Asrock 990FX Fatality killer. I bought the M5A99FX pro 2.0 because it combines very good overclocking capabilities (on par with the UD3,a click below sabertooth,CHF,UD5/7) and a solid bios (I've owned a 970A-UD3 and a M5A97 evo 2.0 before, I prefer Asus bios on AM3+) . So I'd say the asus is overall better but you can't go wrong with either one, the UD3 is a good choice as well.

I'm afraid because the spanish shops don't specify that if you are buying rev. 1.0, rev. 3.0 or rev. 4.0 (of gigabyte). For this I'm thinking in to buy the M5A99X EVO R2.0 or M5A99FX PRO R2.0. The M5A99FX PRO R2.0 I don't like very much because it don't have RAID and I need do RAID with my 2 SSD's.

What do you think? In gigabyte only can buy the rev. 4? some people say that this board is very hot depends of the revision.

about the M5A99X EVO R2.0. Is M5A99X EVO R2.0 a good solution for OC? is it stable? temperature is right?

Thank you another time

Then go with the Gigabyte. It will probably be rev 1.0. That won't matter.

I have the M5A99FX pro and my OC is 4.9GHz stable! Newer rev 4 UD3 boards are hardlocked to throttle on power draw not on temp. So often that limits the UD3 Rev4 OC's to around 4.8GHz.

do you know that, with M5A99FX pro, is it possible make RAID with SATA ports?

Page 5-1 of the manual reads as follows



Raid 0, 1, 5 and 10 are supported which is common for most Asus mobo's
