Asus M5A97 R2.0 VS Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0

Asus M5A97 R2.0 VS Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0
I'm mostly interested if the 990X chipset is better than the 970 in terms of real-life performance.

If it makes a difference I have:
FX-8350
GTX770
Corsair CX600M

    Better get the Asus M5A99X, better thermal design, better power phase design of 6+2 (instead of M5A97's 4+2), SLI/Crossfire able.
    You can overclock on M5A97, still good motherboard, but the 990 will be more stabile, cooler and will achieve greater Ghz.
