I'm looking to overclock my ancient Core Duo E4500 and I was hoping to get help in buying a cooler/fan/heatsink that would allow me to safely reach 2.8 or 2.9ghz all the time. Something in the $x - $20 price range since I'm using it as a stop-gap until I can afford a decent quad core. I'm running an Acer AM5630 with all stock parts, I don't know the wattage of the power supply, if someone knows please tell me.

If you can use your other parts, one very very low cost method is this for $29
Open Box: BIOSTAR G31D-M7 from Newegg

I bought this when it was a Shell Shocker and use it to overclock an e4500 to 3.19 Ghz (12 X 26) @ 1.35 vcore.

I found out the wattage on the power supply, it's 250/300 default. Would I need to get a new power supply to run the processor at 2.8 with the new fan?

The fan will take the same wattage as your fan now. Did you determine if your motherboard allows overclocking?
