120W universal laptop adapter

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My sig laptop I believe has a 90W AC adapter & when the GT 555M is overclocked to 690 core 1050 memory @ 0.92v in game or stress test the CPU will every few seconds, drop to 1.8GHz from 2.7GHz even with both are maintaining below 75c. After much experimenting I found its lack of power for the cause as well as the GPU's weird responses to overclocking such as 2MHz more after X MHz will result in freeze in 3DMark while 2MHz less is stable no artifacts.

The adapter is 19v 6.32A, now if I was to replace it with this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Universal-Laptop-Power-supply-laptops/dp/B000RT8UZ6 would it do any difference since it says it outputs the same amps for the voltage my laptop uses or is just the sake of it being a 120W adapter all the difference?

It won't make any difference as watts is voltage x amps.

If you current adapter is 19v 6.32A then is 120W.

Didn't know that, so I would need a 180W like this http://www.laptop-battery-accessories.com/180w-liteon-ap18001001-universal-notebook-ac-adapter-p-449.html then right? Same voltage but higher amps will not fry the laptop correct?
