Excellent write-up! Thanks tons, Syrillian. Those mirror surfaces look awesome.

Any advice for a first-time lapper on holding the processor while sanding? Ever considered making some sort of jig to manage it? Unnecessary? Bad idea?

I did not use anything to protect the pins, I was very careful. If you want you could use the pad that the CPU was shipped with in conjunction with some blue painters tape to hold it in place (taped to the CPU lip, NOT to the pin area itself).

A jig might be "re-inventing" the wheel....

Indeed it is. I love that cooler, even though it looks more like a bare-knuckled fighter than the more sophisticated Tuniq or Scythe towers.

Great guide! Here is a link to a thread I started (not having seen yours until after-the-fact) reporting the temp decrease lapping my q6600 gave me (pics too).

I'm seriously thinking of lapping my E6700 as it's running quite hot at 66c @ 3730mhz. (1.48v) Orthos small fft stress test. Other applications never actually brought up my temp over 60..

My CPU heatsink is pre-lapped to a mirror finish from the factory (Zalman 9700NT)

Where would you find detail step by step lapping IHS instruction guide here or elsewhere?

Also, a quick question, do you lap the cpu with its cap on to protect from dust and possibly your finger print (as shown in your last few pix).

How do you hold the cpu while you do the lapping? and how do I apply the force down evenly while I'm sanding away on top of a glass table w/ sandgrid paper in between?

These are the questions I'm concern b4 I want to start lapping.
Fortunately, I already have a large glass table in my room and I know the diff stage of sandpaper that we should use, starting from 400 and so on.

Hi.

Yeah, that is on the hot-side.

Not to dis Zalman (I have a CNPS9500 and VF900-that I love), but "Mirror" does not necesarily mean "Flat". The flatness of the surfaces that make contact is paramount.

If you feel up to it, you could lap the Zalman yourself. Starting at 400 will ensure a flat start, then smooth your way up the grit-ladder.

This thread has the techniques that many of the lappers use (I posted #27).

I did not lap my cpu with the anything covering the pins. I was very careful, adn handled the CPU along the outer edges.

Apply only a little pressure, don't want to damage that CPU. It takes some time, but slow and steady wins this particular type of race.

Yes. Use some Painters Blue tape to affix the sandpaper to the glass surface, and make certain that it is taught. You don't want the paper furrowing as you slide the components accross it.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Good luck!

Your camera is either dirty or you did not use the macro focus... its the little flower mode... Allo your images are blurry. Other than that, good info, its quite sleek when completed!
