After reading E4300 Overclocking for Beginners-from 1.8ghz to 3.47ghz here we go! I decided that cpu is the one i'm going to get. I have never overclocked before but I fell more confident now that i read the article.
The set up i have is
550watt psu Gigabyte ga-p35-ds4 E4300 cpu Crucial 2GB Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 DDR2 EVGA Geforce 8800gts 640mb 500mhz stock 2 sata harddrives 1 dvd burner and six small pc fans with my case
will this set up work to achive 3.47ghz? and is my power going to give me enough juice?
CPU clock ratio 9x
CPU host frequency (Mhz) 386
system memory multiplier 3.00
memory frequency (Mhz) 1158
I have read the revies of the Crucial 2GB Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 DDR2 and its overclocks @ 1200MHz using 2.4V. stock 5-5-5-15 another thing i dont know is if i need a aftermarket fan and if i will have 1:1 ratio?
Your help is Appreciated!

Should work. i don't see why it wouldn't. I know the E4200 on my friends PC hit 2.6GHz and he had only one RAM module. So with your setup I'd expect ou to be able to hit a much higher frequency.
i really want to push it to 3.47 though would this be a 1:1 ratio? i dont even know if i'm aking the right question but i'll i hear is that the works better than 1:2 example.
