Start by setting your voltages to auto in bios, Raise the FSB to 378 and lets try 3.4GHz.

Make sure your memory is not going past its rated speed set it to ddr2 6400 (800MHz)

If your reboot fails then try a spp of 1.5V and the FSB at 1.5V (both max I believe) If that fails get a real MB
I have line dampening on my 780i. Asus calls it Load Line Calibration, but I don't use it becasue takes away VOffset and VDroop which are there to protect the CPU. You actually thinks it's a good feature? LOL Read this:
