you have same processor as I do, but yours sits at 2.8, hm you have it underclocked?
Anyways, its a good processor, this one I have is going on 4 or 5 years old now.
bring FSB up to 900mhz in the bios, by doing that, you processor should bring you up to 3.375mhz which is 3.37Ghz. Watch your cpu temps on load depending on what cooling you have.
set ram timings to 4-4-4-8 , see if that boots up, if not change ram timings to 4-4-4-12
Let me know how it goes from there and then you may increase little by little until you reach your temp barrier which on load 60c is fine.
