The article has stagnated since there really isn't that much to talk about. There isn't much difference between the chipsets, and the differences are mostly attributable to the maturity of the BIOS and the quality of the motherboard.

The article will go up eventually, but in the mean time here are the results. I wasn't looking to break records, just seeing if there was any difference between the chipsets at 24/7-type overclocks. Voltage = 1.45vCore/1.30vNB/1.68vDimm.

Motherboards used:
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO (785G Chipset)
ASUS M4A78T-E (790GX Chipset)
ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 (890GX Chipset)
GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD7 (890FX Chipset)

I haven't yet uploaded the new screenshots, but all the chipsets can hit 340-341 except for the 890FX which stopped at 324. This is an early BIOS issue not a chipset difference.
