lol That was bad wasn't it?

By making it flatter you have better contact with in this case the heatsink, TIM expands and contracts when heated and cooled, "curing" filling any imperfections in the surface area, you want the closest contact between the two surfaces and the best finish "smoothness" you can.

No offense, but what you did to that CPU is not considered lapping. If it was lapped properly, you would see your reflection in it. What you did is not going to help temps much if at all and you really need to get a smooth finish on that CPU.

Actually your somewhat incorrect.

While giving it a mirror finish is probably a better thing the main reason for lapping a cpu is to get rid of the inperfections in the surface. A lot of cpus are not perfectly flat from the factory and doing what I did removes that.

yup that's lapped , he just didnt polish it which gives the mirror finish.but did you just sand with 1 sand paper or did you start with a lower grit and work yourself up to a higher grit?

I don't need tutorials I know how to do it I just got lazy and wanted to flatten it. I'll worry about the other grits later. It idles around 46' and never hits over 60' under load so *shrug*
