Just lapped my 965

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, I got bored and curious. So I looked up a vid or two on how to lap the CPU, went to wallyworld and got 400,800,1000 and 2000 grain sand paper, and over the last 2 hours, lapped it. Turned out pretty good. I'm seeing a 4-5 degree drop in idle temps right now, has well has a 3 degree drop when folding.
I'll check it again tomorrow when it is warmer in my room, right now the ac is cranking, and it still isn't that cool.

Before Idle 38-40

New Idle, 33.

Before Folding, 55( I know this is warm, but my room is pretty toasty too)

After folding, 51.

I used Arctic Formula 5, and I think it has a "set" time???? I'm not sure, maybe I'll see another degree or two change when it sets....

Thanks Conner. I'm using a Hyper TX3 for this too, If I went with a 212+ or H50 water cooler, my temps would probably be significantly lower. If I can find some $ laying around somewhere I may be tempted to do that.

You could get an h60 on newegg for 59.99 shipped, if you open a new account and use promo NEWCUSTOMER10

If you lapped your Heatsink as well, you would get great temps.
