Get different CPU.
W3690 is much better choice for overclocking because it has open multipliers. Ofc you need to have board that also has option in BIOS. Then you can overclock that particular CPU model by just changing CPU multiplier. One I used to had multipliers selectable up to 64x. No other s1366 Xeon, be it from X or W series AFAIK has open multiplier.

Ebay should have those Xeon's still up for sale.
