Check out these quotes from Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 reviews & previews
"The best part of it all is that the E4300 is a no-compromise core; you end up losing VT support, but all of the performance elements are there. The 800MHz FSB isn't crippling enough to really hinder performance, and the smaller cache is more than acceptable for the vast majority of applications. The Core 2 Duo E4300 is no Celeron; if anything it's a spiritual successor to a long line of attractive, highly overclockable Intel CPUs. It's everything Intel's Pentium D 820 was, but with much higher performance and a much lower power envelope."
"Intel has a sure fire winner on its hands, and it is an even better chip for enthusiasts than the 805 D that we first found to be an awesome overclocker. Personally, I prefer the E4300 to an E6400 even though I've managed to overclock the E6400 somewhat higher as you can achieve huge overclocks with more reasonably priced memory and motherboards. Spend the difference on superior cooling."
"To conclude we have to say that Intel made a smart move by lowering the FSB and raising the frequency. This gives overclockers a bit more headroom and it becomes a lot simpler calculating the final frequency. The biggest problem with our sample was the heat. Even at pretty low voltages the temperature was higher than expected. If you have a better cooler this shouldn't be a problem, but we can't recommend anyone to run this processor with passive cooling. Despite that E4300 will most likely become the bang for the buck of the season."
"The Core 2 Duo E4300 is also a gift for overclockers since it doesn't require special overclocker-friendly components and has an affordable price. But to all appearances, Allendale-based CPUs won't reach as high frequencies at overclocking as Conroe-based CPUs do."
