    temps are around 62c with cpu usage set to 100%, i think thats pretty decent when you think of its a huge aluminium piece

    I am seeing 65c load on my i7 right now. I guess between lapping and supposedly having a lucky chip that hits 3.8 with 1.175v I don't have to worry about temps much.

    Post a pic of the power connector, I believe all Inspirons are the same unless you have an older one. If it is the rounded one, I have a spare and I still have your shipping address.

    Are you sure its dead? I've used chargers on laptops they weren't meant for (too high power draw) and they all usually go into a protection mode before they physically destroy themselves. Leave it unplugged for 3-6hrs and try it again.

    This is actually a hexagonal one, but it works fine with the round connectors (I've used it with a 90w plug for a Latitude and I'm currently borrowing a 65w plug from another Dell owner; he needs it back for his laptop, but it powers mine fine).

    My address has actually changed, I'm away at school in Raleigh now, but I'll PM you my new one.
    I'm almost certain it's dead, the light on the cord doesn't even come on (and I've been using this adapter with the upgraded CPU for ~10 months at this point). It's been unplugged for a few hours, but I'll try again in a bit :)

    I have an older 125w Latitude one (Big F***er!) It works fine but the cord insulation is frayed in a couple of spots.

    It's yours if you want to mess with taping it up :)

    @ Ion-I have the spare, it's a 90W rounded end PA-3E (Dell P/N: CM889). It's yours if you still need it.

    It's brand new unused BTW;)

    Stuff laying around at work collecting dust (and mold)

    Thanks, I'm pretty sure that one would work fine as well. I'm negotiating with Norton ATM, but I'll let you know! :toast:

    I have a new cord on the way, so I'll get the Dell crunching again when it arrives. Sure, it's only a C2D, but it does 1k PPD easy, uses 60w, and is conveniently small :toast:

    My WCG communication hasn't been too bad today (knocks woods/rubs rabbits foot), just a few minor glitches. :)

    No issues here either :toast:
    I have noticed that C4SW seems to be surprisingly short on WUs, even my computers set to get nothing but them are still getting at most 50%.
