    Asrock 990FX Extreme3 is also very good at it's price, costs ~110 euros here in Finland.

    I would've went with a Sabertooth.
    The ASRock boards are known to throttle with FX CPUs due to too much power draw. This is not a problem with Thuban, but is a major problem with the newer CPUs with their redesigned VRM input.
    The Sabertooth is realistically the cheapest you'd want to go to get a good FX overclock.
