What you would do is overclock the 6300/6400 to the same speed at the 6600
Keep in mind your watching your temps.
Then i would benchmark the CPU with a program such as sisoft Sandra
See how it compares to the E6600
If it lags slightly behind becuase of the cache difference, (which should be very minimal)
overclock it higher to make up for it.
As long as you keep your temps in check, and your system runs stable, there should be no problem
use a program called Prime95 (below) to help you see if your system is stable with the overclock.
