I guess third option would be to replace OSB with plywood and top with thinner Oak flooring.

Particular Board, Chip Board, Wafer Board, whatever, this originated in the early 1970s when the Chinese came to America and was "given" tree stumps in Oregon State and other areas in the Northeast. Americans thought they were crazy offering to remove the vast areas of bald Mountain Tops (forestry remains). The Chinese built giant platforms in international waters and glued the chipped from the stumps to make "wafer boards" and sold the product back to America and profited greatly. The American Roofers and builders had seen this new cheap 3 dollar wafer board as a profit margin and went crazy with it. Soon... the glue disintegrated from the heat of the sun and condensation. Millions of rooves were replaced within a years time. New modern OSB, Particular Board, still disintegrates when moisture is introduced, Water based glue is the fear and problem. Cheap is Cheap no matter how you look at get what you pay for.
