Since you are running a quad core, it puts more stress on the NB. So increase the NB voltage to 1.35v (1.25v is stock). That should be enough for a 400 FSB. Also try increasing your vcore slightly. Set your FSB voltage (VTT) to 1.32v. Then work your way up from there.

BTW, here is an article on OCing your Xeon X3320 at the Tech Report:

Here are the Intel Specs (I would use 1.3625v as the max vcore):

Let me ammend my previous post, the Asus Striker II Formula (780i) will need more like 1.35v to the NB. For some reason, I thought you had the ASUS Formula II which is a P45 chipset...

The max I would recommend for the 780i chipset is 1.5v. 1.35v to the NB should be enough for the a 400 FSB.

Upping the voltages on your vdimms will not help you overclock your cpu. Ericeod recommended up the vCore to 1.5 and your NB to 1.3v. This should allow you to attain the oc your looking for. Run stress tests and check temps, etc.

I ammeded my first post about the NB voltage. I adjusted it for the 780i NB. I did not recommend 1.5v vcore, that is going to kill a 45nm CPU. Do not go over 1.3625v vcore to the CPU. The 1.5v is for the 780i NB max voltage. I recommend 1.35v to the NB for a 400 FSB OC with a quad core.

Here is NVIDIA's overclocker's guide. This manual is a must read!
NVIDIA 780i/680i Overclocker's Guide, revised May 2008

Note that this guide is for the reference NVIDIA design which ASUS doesnt follow. So the terms are different. To clarify, SPP is the northbridge and the MCP is the southbridge...

NO, vCore at 1.5v will kill his chip, he said not to go past 1.5 for the NB, his chip is a 45nm and can be damaged after 1.4v!!

Oops just got my numbers switched around thanks... 1.5v to core is suicide on 45nm

You are not giving the CPU enough vcore! Set it to 1.3v vcore.

Are you setting your ram to the lowest divider? Set it to run as close to 800 as possible. Also, set your trasaction Booster to 8 and your AI Clock twister to light. Thats the only thing I can think of to try next.

Damn, I did it again. Yeah you are right, you have the ASUS Striker II Formula, and not the ASUS Formula II.... Tour 780i board doesnt have those options so I am sorry for bringing them up.
