Default Lapping job...

I'm pretty happy with my very first lapping job, well, enough happy to let you see the results ! I used to have cnps9700LED wich I trade for a TRUE (wich I lapped)... I have to say I'm really impressed with how the TRUE does the job... it dropped my core temps from 41-44 to 28-36 and my cpu temp from 28 to 19 degrees ( cpu running at stock speed and stock voltages ). So here are some pics...

Thanks man... I started off with 400 grit then 600, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000 and finished it all with a 3M car finishing compound... Did the trick ! The whole process took me about 3 hours.

Superb lapping job but always remember, it doesn't matter how shiny the base is if it isn't flat ;)

Lapping the Heat Sink is one thing... Lapping your processors a risk I'd rather not take since theres a lot to loose and not enough to gain.

Yea , I'd have agreed with you back in the p4 days......I wanted to lap my proc but it has that little hole , and well , pins.....

-Now , the IHS is a sealed unit to my knowledge.....(Intel newayz , my core 2 is.)

I'm gonna lap both when I get the time...The cpu makers have made it as good as it's gonna get ; seal'd IHS and no pins.

If you can lap a heatsink , you can lap a cpu No Problem

As long as you follow proper handling and static control measures , it's easy....more elbow grease than anything.

It does however , immediately void any warantee you might have.....

Agreed...I did the razor blade test a couple of time during the 400 grit phase to be real sure it was flat before going on with higher grits.

So yer lapping that quadcore next right ?

Thanks! But I'm not sure about lapping a 1200$ proc, though I "only" paid 700$ for it... Maybe I'll grow some balls later...
