Abit IN9 32x Max Intel Socket 775 Motherboard

Overclocking was performed through the BIOS, as all good 24/7 overclocking should be done. I have heard mixed results from the 680i chipset so I was wondering what I would get from the IN9. There are plenty of BIOS options to play with but the BIOS feels a bit in need of an update and it seems I am not the only one to think so.
Low Voltage Overclocking
I set an upper limit of 1.325v for the CPU and clocked the CPU as high as I could whilst maintaining a 3 hour Orthos (dual prime95) stable overclock. As the abit board only gives you 1.33v or 1.32v I have chosen 1.32v.
Overclocking - Highest Possible Stable on Air
For this test I stopped when I got concerned that the temperature rose too high. This overclock was performed on air using a Scythe Infinity. I stopped when the CPU started getting around 65-70°C. For this overclock I had to use 1.65v which is not always to be recommended for those who are faint of heart! Let's see how we get on here.
Here the abit board showed some weakness.
A mixed bag of overclocking, but there is certainly a lot of potential.
