Getting a super high oc on an E4300 takes the BSEL mod or the right mobo and bios.. The E4300 is limited to around 400-408fsb without said bsel mod/bios...

If you want to run your vcore as low as you can, using the 9x multi is not the way.. I have found using the 8x multi allowed almost every E4300 to run at near stock Vcore while oc'ed.. I have mine running 400fsb x8 @ 1.28vcore stable.. That is below the stock vcore of 1.325v.. And of course, it runs cooler now..

Every E4300 I have seen above 400fsb were way above 400fsb.. 460fsb and even 520fsb were hit but only with extreme cooling and the Bsel/bios mod.. I have seen one on air I think at 420fsb, but the performance of the 420fsb was no better than 400fsb..

IMO if you under volt and you are stable, I doubt you are damaging your cpu..
