reflex99 seems about right here. 790FX-GD70 is usually known for dying at 1.5V or above - not necessarily with a big light show.

Should be 8+2 phase. At least that's what it says right on the box.

H70 is a pretty decent cooler, on par with most high end coolers; since Phenom II OCs better when cooler (i.e. requiring less voltage) I'm pretty sure you could get pretty far places
The M4A89TD PRO/USB3 uses a 6+2 phase, M4A89TD PRO (not USB3) has 8+2 phase. Both the M4A89GTD PRO versions use 8+2 phase. Not really a huge difference I'd think, whether 8+2 or 6+2 they're both of quality.

whoops, sorry. Didn't see the lack of a G in that. But I can say, the MOSFET heatsink on my M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 stays VERY cool.
