Default Thermal Grease n Lapping

Well folks when I get home in a month from work should have my new X58 Classified Board waiting for me...just curious, what was that "Diamond Thermal Grease" someone mentioned a few days ago all about....?
What you guys recomend for Thermal Grease when I put it back together, I previously used the goop that came with the TRUE, but didn't find the results all that great.
Also...would you guys recomend Lapping the TRUE and CPU...? If so can you link me to some decent "lessons" in Lapping..

Cheers

Here's the link for requesting a free tube.... Free innovation cooling 7 carat diamond tim giveaway!! (follow the instructions... he wants both a PM & a post stating that you'll post your results).

I wouldn't recommend lapping your true or CPU unless you run into a problem.
