The E6300 has more features than the E4500. E6300 would be faster clock for clock.
E4500 have a higher multiplier. E6300 have a 7x multiplier. That should be no problem with your motherboard anyway. Also those E4xxx chips have low FSB walls. E6300 have a much higher FSB wall.
I once had a E4300. It could not go much past 3.3GHz. That E4500 would probably do about the same.
E6300 should be good for at least 3.2GHz. Probably more. If your lucky it will reach 3.5 - 3.6GHz. Have a look at this... Core 2 E4300 vs. E6300 Overclocking Battle
I would have taken the E6300 anyday over a E4500. E6300 is a fullblood conroe core. E4500 is a stripped down core.
Edit: The E6300 has the same amount of cache as the E4500. However, E6300 have more features. Like Virtualization tech..Edited by turrican9 - 2/19/11 at 3:45pm
