You'd want a 990board if your really into overclocking or want something extreme
970 Are not good for 8 cores either 4+1 4+2phases only
meaning you'd have 4 for cpu
and either 2 or 1 for Northbridge

The OP does not need a super high end mobo for this 95W TDP chip, I have same cpu and my mobo (Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0) is a sterling performer for cpus in this TDP spec. I do have excellent air cooling though so that helps too..

Another thing to consider for stable moderate to high OC's is a top quality PSU.

The cheapest motherboard to overclock without concerns is ASUS m5A7 EVO R.2.0. It's 6+2 phase. Normally, the Gigabyte 970 UD3P would be better choice (8+2 phase), but their current BIOS status is messed up, making simple overclocking too complicated.

Your current motherboard is known to present serious problems overclocked.

^ The list hasn't been updated in ages, but it contains the entire MSI 970 family, which uses the same VRM as yours.

Sabertooth is close to perfection for FX OC.
