there are several E series dual core CPU is that same die size range and power usage. Is it possible that the 5300 is the nearing end of series before die increse? Perhaps try a slightly increased voltage and perhaps a slight vtt boost (maybe +100mV) and try running 2.8GHz and work your way up from there.

I'd suggest once you get about 2.9GHz stable, save your settings in bios profiles, and try and keep pushing it. The reason you want to save the profile is incase the pc doesn't post, you can always reload your stable pre-sets.

Hope that helps
