NO, not at all. From what I have been told here and read a polished surface is not what you are after. The thermal paste may not do its job very well either on a mirror finish. achieving a virtually flat surface is what you are after, flatter the better.

As someone mentioned to me , the shine factor is only for the ego, not for performance.
