Simple answer is yes.
Thanks loneninja. Is the e5300 a good overclocker? I could overclock my 4000+ from 2.1ghz to 2.8ghz stable
Yes the E5300 is an excellent overclocker if paired with the right board.
The e5300 will hit in excess of 3.0Ghz with ease. I have an e5200 in a very basic mATX HTPC board and it runs at 3.2Ghz without breaking a sweat. The performance will be much better than the old setup.
