Lapping

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, guys and gals.

I'm thinking of having a go at lapping a CPU, but, of course, I'm not ready to commit to doing it with my i7. tongue.gif
But I do have an old AMD Athlon 6000+ sitting here that I don't mind sacrificing for the good of education.

I was looking at [this tutorial.
Anyone have any other pointers that aren't mentioned? Or just general advice?

I have a pretty full workload coming up, so I'm not sure when I'll get the chance to do this, but I'll update this once I've had my first attempt.

Thanks everyone!

I've done several CPUs, its really not that hard, just takes a little time and some are more stubborn than others - the easiest place to find the high grit sand paper is in automotive stores (i.e. Pepboys) and really anything above 1200 grit is useless.

As long as you take your time, sand everything evenly, and use the proper grit of paper, you should be golden!

I don't mean to cause any offense..................................................my views are not too positive, so I'll just post a link.

Although, I do like the idea of testing the limit of the CPU through overclock, but to lap it ? thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Hmmm. It's hard to take a guy like that seriously when everyone who tries to debate his argument intelligently, he just sticks his fingers in his ears and calls them idiots.

Albeit stupid or not. There is plenty of data out there showing it works when done properly.
Not to mention, this is a forum for people who like to push every spec of performance from their hardware. So that "stupid" 2 degrees dropped from lapping is a big bonus for people, too.

And hell, unless I got ridiculously comfortable and confident at it, I would never do it to a new CPU. This entire process is pretty much so I can say I've done it and I've learnt how to do it.,

Wow lol. You took this guy seriously? total moron...

Yes lapping is fine, and it's not at all dangerous. And it should be very easy with an intel CPU (no pins to bend). Just touch something large and metal to dissipate static every time you touch the CPU. Don't be scared, you won't hurt it.

Now whether or not it's noticeably beneficial is another matter, but it should be good for 2C or so.
