Nordic Hardware's overclocking expert "crotale" has gotten his hands on Abit's AW9D-MAX with the intention of pushing for a 500MHz FSB, and you guessed it.. he succeeded.
Our OC guru Robert 'crotale' Kihlberg has been playing around with his Abit AW9D-MAX and tried to reach 500MHz FSB. A fews days back he was ridiculously close at 499.9MHz. Even though he had made extensive modifications to the board he ended up right below 500. Fortunately, he didn't give and up and after feeding the board with even more voltage he managed to go past and reach 502.9MHz SuperPi-stable. An impressive figure and now we're just awaiting benchmarks at this speed, which will come soon. Until then you will have to get by with a screenshot from the overclocking session.
