Help with choosing motherboard for amd fx 6300 overclocking

I'm considering about buying new motherboard for amd fx 6300 overclock to at least 4.6ghz without vrm throttling. My budget is around 100 euros (max 115), I live in Lithuania and my choices are:
Asrock Fatal1ty 970 performance
Asus M5A97 evo R2.0
Gigabyte 990XA-UD3 (heard about throttling)
MSI 970 Gaming

My cooling is:
Scythe mugen 4 pcgh edition
Scythe thermal paste (I will change it, if I find motherboard)
Cooler master k280 case and 3 cooler master fans
Fortron fsp700-50arn power supply with 80+ silver rating (with silent fan mod)

If I don't find good motherboard I will be with my Gigabyte 78lmt-s2p rev 5.x

  1. If possible I would go for an Asrock 990FX extreme 6 or extreme 9.

    But out of the choices you listed I would probably choose the MSI.
