welcome to OCC! also no you cannot overclock it in it's curent state. dell locks the motherboard bios from overclocking. also normally xeons by default are on a platform of stability not for experimenting.

Welcome to OCC. No you can't OC as its been said since most of the prebuilt machines have the bios options for overclocking shadowed. as to 800mhz memory I am not sure.
