    Winner of Abit overclocking competition

    ok folks
    As winner of the ABIT overclocking competition.

    I am officaily recommending this AW9D Max motherboard. The reason for which is this

    With my week 24 Conroe 6600 2 gigs of corsair ram and watercooling CPu I tested them out on my work collegues Asus P5W DH Deluxe. I could NOT achieve a stable overclock higher than 3.689 if I went to 3.17 it went unstable and was unable to boot to windows. However using the exact same components and installed on the AW9D Max motherboard I achieved 3.817 STABLE and stable for TWO days straight!

    Even with the Corsair Value Ram I was using I knew that if I replaced the northbridge block with a W/C cooled block I could EASILY break the 4 gig barrier.

    Anyway I am including a link to my overclocking results and super-pi results.

    They way I see it is that if I can do this on Corsair VALUE ram and the Standard UNMODIFIED Aw9d max motherboard, then you can all do it

    This motherboard is the business and I offically recommend this board.

    Why is this in the Scan section & where are the 24hrs Orthos Prime stable shots?

    Also it's unlikely that you'd get another 200Mhz frrom just cooling the Northbridge.

    Nice set up though.
