M5A99FX PRO R2.0 or SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0

Hi guys, I'm in the market for a new MoBo and have found these two;

but not sure which to choose from. I'm on a tight budget and so was originally attracted to the M5 as I could also buy a new CPU cooler too, whereas as with the Sabertooth I would not. I would like to know your opinions on what I should go for. I am planning to overclock my FX 4100 abit but nothing to extreme. Its basically for gaming and the average day to day use with file transfers etc, nothing too special.

Thanks in advance, YMY

My other specs are;
600W modular Corsair PSU
GTX 760

  2. Hi, thanks for the super fast response. One more question if you would be so kind, what cooler is good for the FX 4100 with slight overclocking. I'm looking for as budget as possible without being of poor quality, something around the £20/25 quid mark (if that is good quality), YMY.
