Now being the person I am, 980Mhz is not acceptable.  I knew this chip could do the G mark, but this board wasn't cutting it.  I noticed that the ICS chip was hot to the touch, enough to make me jerk back in reaction.  So I decided to prove this hypothesis of the ICS heat problem.  

   I went and rummaged around my pile of junk and found the smallest heatsink that will fit on the chip.  Must have been lucky because I had an extra GlobalWin FA420 lying around!  This is a 40X40X20mm chipset cooler, a decent sized fan to cool a small area.  I know it isn't meant for the clock gen, but oh well...it covers it completely:

   The good thing about the cooler is that it comes with frag tape on the bottom!  So it attaches itself quite easily without any hassle:

   To apply the heatsink, I peeled away the back piece of paper and simply pressed the heatsink down onto the ICS chip itself:
