Can the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev 4.0 OC well?

I bought this mobo last month and want to oc my cpu. Before I buy an aftermarket heatsink, can you guys tell me if the mobo handles overclocking well?

I was thinking about buying the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

CPU: AMD FX 8350
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance
GPU: Radeon R9 280x

  1. If it is revision 4.0 it should there were issues with previous revisions and VRM's. The CM Hyper 212 EVO is a fine budget choice.
  2. This motherboard is an excellent overclocking for FX CPU's it has 8+2 power phase which is good for extreme overclocking.
