Yeah I know what you feel like... Lapping a brand new heatsink was kind of freekin' me out ( lapping my proc still does... ). But actually, it was pretty easy. All you have to do, is to take your time while doin' it. Keyword is patience...

Nicely Done, thanks for sharing. I especially like the reflection of the light around the penny.

You can never see enough succesful jobs before you get the guts to attempt one yourself, especially those of us with less parts and scrimping to get what we did.

I think your example has given me the push to get my Sycthe Ninja out and lapped.

Someone who has a spare TRUE..... you should machine the base down until it is touching the Heatpipes.... Direct Touch Ultra 120 Extreme anyone???

Thanks man. Here's a walktrought that could help you out : How to Lap a Heatsink Guide - Overclockers Club

The only thing I did different, is when it says "slowly move the heat sink up and down the paper"... I proceeded this way instead : YouTube - Lapping Thermalright Ultra Extreme

Oh yeah... and I finished the job with a finishing compound...

Happy lapping !!!

BTW... I found all the required sandpapers at Canadian Tire...

Isnt it best to have a slightly bowed heat-sink for newer intel chips so it puts more pressure on the IHS where the cores are? I'm just thinking about the reason behind bowing the apogee GT/GTX cpu blocks which seem pretty flat but can be bowed with a larger o-ring.

Yes Swiftech research shows it is an advantage to have a bowed surface for a heatsink with the C2D cpus becasue of their concave surface .....

Thats why it would be more effective to lap BOTH the cpu and heatsink so they mate perfectly,and it does make a difference if done correctly .....

Go on go for it ! Just be careful. Heres my X6800 lapped for 3 degree cooler running....

Man it REALLY freaks me out. Did you use wet sandpapers to lap your cpu ???

EDIT: Forget about that question, I found a walkthrough for lapping a cpu : Guide to Lapping an Intel LGA 775 Processor - Overclock3D Forums
