Has anyone made a nice socket diagram with the voltage pins and what to do all circled? I'd like to see that .

I'll order a new heatsink from dell parts if it is copper, but I want to make sure first.

And they called me mad when, for no reason whatsoever, I water cooled my Dreamcast.

Have you considered trying to replace either of the fans inside? It may be possible if you can find a small enough slot fan, and mod it to fit in the existing place.
Or, and this is TOTALLY impractical (out-of-the-box, remember ), you might be able to mod the battery compartment. You could place a small modded slot fan underneath the keyboard (there seems to be room), and cut a small square part out of the battery compartment plastic. The fan would blow air out into the empty battery compartment. Then you would just make sure to not have the battery in when you're running at that speed. If you feel like being mobile, simply clock down the cpu/gpu and put the battery in.
Does that make any sense? No, of course not, but I'm just trying to get you to think of a possible alternative to getting the CPU stable at that speed.
