Honestly, you MAY see a difference when moving to extreme levels of cooling but for 24/7 overclocks, I really don't think more phases will do a lick of difference.
On the flip side of that coin though, there is a thin line between enough phases and not enough. When the first Phenoms were released, lower-end AM2 boards had power phases blowing left, right and center since the chips pulled too much juice and the PWM just couldn't handle it.
