As far as your sparks, take out the power supply and look at the bottom side of the board where the AC connector is soldered. Look for broken/cracked solder blobs. loose connections, or burn marks in this area. If you see any of that, the connecter will need to be re-soldered. If the scorches are really bad, you may have issues getting solder to stick.
EDIT: Also, if you happen to be one of the unlucky ones with the AC connector that does not have the support studs, you will need to reenforce the connector somehow. I like to use a big blob of hot glue right behind it on the top side of the board. This works awesome.

Provided you use a good quality thermal paste, it will run even cooler than it would with the stock solution.
