It's essentially a dead platform and therefore you're throwing your money down a well if you've already decided that you're going to upgrade when Zen / AM4 becomes available. You won't be able to sell your stuff for even remotely close to what you'll be paying for it, if you're going to buy now. Given this, I wouldn't be buying a new AM3+ board if I was in your shoes.
If you're really dead set on seeing your new purchase through then by all means. It might give you a slightly better OC with less voltage because of the better power delivery system, and i'm sure it'll make you feel more secure as well, but the reality is that when you're overclocking with anything it's a crapshoot when it comes to component quality. What kind of overclock do you have? Are you using standard voltage or are you using an offset value? As long as you're not slamming your CPU/MB with prime95 constantly and have good airflow through your case, along with a good quality power supply then I wouldn't worry about it.
With the money you'll save, buy better components next round.Edited by nakano2k1 - 6/19/16 at 1:33pm
