I can confirm on dell xps 1530 with nvidia 8600m GT, lucid and 256 series driver.

This just happen with an external monitor attached, powermizer is locked to performance level 2 and cpu quickly geoes to 90 degress. As in comment #59.

Disabling the external monitor, I get back to situation you see in the screenshot attached and cpu gets cooler.

just in case, monitor is attached with VGA cable.
