Would 90* SATA connectors clear the 3870 fan housing? Or would they be oriented the wrong way?
If they were put in the same location, then probably not. The answer really is to move the SATA ports closer to the edge of the motherboard.

Actually, the EPU feature won't work if you are overclocking.

I don't know if you saw the voltage regulation section, but I would advise that you also change your PLL and VTT/FSB voltages to their second lowest settings, since it appears that the entire P5Q series overvolts.
