What clock speed could I get out of my FX-8350 with my Motherboard?

I'm new to overclocking and don't not have the best motherboard for overclocking (an ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0). I know I can't get a big boost (like 5GHz) but could I maybe get a smaller OC like 4.5GHz?

Its just ultimately low quality with a 4 phase setup (essentially a pro 3 with heatsinks) .

Many people have had issues running 8350s at stock on it let alone oc.

If I had that system running & it was stable with an 8350 I'd personally be considering myself lucky & leaving bios settings alone.

An 8 core at 4.5ghz isnt by any means a 'small overclock' , on that board it'll need 1.45v+ & those vrm's won't handle it without overheating.

are you suspecting it will be unable to supply the current needed? I suppose that is an issue with lower power VRMs and power delivery systems.
