According to XS the only thing to do is pin mod the cpus.

Only one way to find out if it can support it, or if it won't boot.

Worst case just take the tape off the pins.

I don't find any other way to overclock the board besides pin mod.

Back in 2008 I built a nice little 8-core setup around Supermicro X7DCA-L Micro ATX in a Lian Li PC-V350B SFF Cube Case. I used a pair of quad core E5340 ES 1066 FSB Clovertowns, tape modded to 3 GHz @ 1333 FSB with 12GB (6 x 2GB) DDR2-667 Reg/ECC RAM. The video card was an eVGA 9800 GX2 1GB Dual GPU which just fit in thal Lian Li cube case. The Lian Li came with dual 120mm inlet fans at the front which were right next to the Xeons, providing fresh cool air for the HS/Fans. A couple of slot coolers cleared out any heat from either side of the 9800 GX2 although it did have a fan between the two cards that exhausts heat out the back also. The power supply was an Antec Earth Watts 650W which did a nice job of powering everything nice and stable.
