x5660 overclocking on an unbranded x58 board


I've just been looking at some cheap, unbranded x58 motherboards on ebay.

It's unbranded, so assuming it has some pretty weak VRMs.
I have a couple spare x5660 that i know can hit at least 4.2ghz on decent boards, and want to build a system for a friend using one.
I'm curious what you think (or know) the overclocking potential might be on one of these boards?

Fairly sure none of these are capable of overclocking. They are basic in function and probably don't even work with CPU intel turbo.

There are various videos on youtube about them and if you want it for basic use then maybe but overclocking or anything is a no go.
