Try 22*180 turn off turbo, vcore 1.3v. qpi 1.3v, uncore x2 multi of ram, ram multi x6. Cooler is weak, it has no chance of cooling overclocked x58 cpu over 4ghz, and even 4 is questionable. Try it, if temps shoot over 85c decrease bclk by 5 and try again
I had i7 920 quite a long time ago, good sample, and it needed 1.34v for 4,3ghz and noctua nhd14 barely cooled it. That xeon is 32nm granted, and dissipates less heat, but still, v120 is entry level AIO. I doubt that it could handle even 4ghz,maybe 3.6-3.8
