Can the E6320 overclock to at least 3 Ghz? I realize it just came out, but I want my CPU to reach at least 3 Ghz, and an E4300 can easily. Thanks.

id say the e4300 although there is a e4400 now that has a clock speed of 2.0ghz and a multi of 10 which would only need a meagre fsb of 300 to reach 3ghz, i believe its cheaper than the 2 you mentioned also

Yea, it does have a 4mb L2 cache. I researched and found it still overclocks like the other C2D CPUs. For only $35 more it is worth it.
