Windows 7: Xeon compatible?

Well the X5670 does work this this motherboard, but I've had absolutely no luck trying to overclock it and right now performance is worse than with the i920 at 3.8GHz in the apps I care about. Looking for some help on a few OC forums but if I don't get anywhere with it this week then I'll have to get rid of the CPU. At least this will give me an opportunity to lap the i920.

You cannot overclock Xeon processors. They are not designed for that. They are made for server/workstation class systems for sustained used and reliability. Overclocking is opposite of those goals.

I understand your logic but they're definitely overclockable... lot's of people doing it, just not with this motherboard apparently.

They are overclocking the Base Clock, which has its own problems as it governs more than just the CPU. Overclocking the Base Clock requires every component on the motherboard to be stable with the increase, specifically your RAM. The max you are going to get when overclocking the Base Clock is going to be limited on the least stable component.
