Legion Hardware has an article on overclocking Intel's Core 2 Duo E4300 processors, aimed at beginners:

"Prior to the 3.47GHz overclock, the performance of the Core 2 Duo E4300 was quite poor and although it was only slightly slower than the E6300 in a number of tests, it did fall behind the Pentium D 950 in quite a few tests. Nevertheless, for enthusiasts the E4300 is going to be all about overclocking performance and as the E4300 demonstrated here today, it has a lot of it. The E4000 series of processors are really no different to those of the E6000 series, the only difference is the cheaper E4000 processors have the VT technology disabled. This has absolutely no impact on performance and I am sure most users will not miss this technology.."
