Do you know what motherboard it is?

As long as he has PCI lock, and the ability to change the bus speed he can overclock, but he will probally hit the limit of the ram quite early on as I assume it is generic/value.

Well if the FSB options are locked looks like your pretty much screwed. What brand/model of motherboard does your friend have?
