Oops! I think I figured it out, but I'm not sure. I never thought to check Intel's website for the X5675 memory specs. Now that I did, it lists 800/1066/1333 as the only memory types. Could that be the problem? Shouldn't there be room for overclocking? I mean the CPU itself overclocked just fine. And people use XMPs all the time, which is practically memory overclocking.

What do you think?

Are you saying your "new" Xeon x5675 was never been used before you bought it?
It is also ~ 8 years old btw.

800/1066/1333mhz are guarantied ram frequencies. In OC mode up to 2200mhz should be possible.
Yes, as far as I know. That's what the description on Amazon said.
