Lapping- Sand Grits - Page 2

post #11 of 25
NO do not use a power sander, it is done with the paper taped to a peice of glass, I have an old window from a toaster oven it is nice and thick and makes a great lapping table.

well in my opinion !! <BR><BR> i would actualy start with the 600 and go to 2000 because it will be alot easier to get it to a smooth finish it will miby take a little longer to get down to the brass but when your at it change to a higher grit every 3/4 min and that will give u a nice finish also for even finner grit , take 2x 2000 and rub them together this in turn will double the grit making it abot 4000 i recomend it thats what i done

and as for surfaces take an old mirror or sheet of glass tap the sand paper to it then with your chip stick it in a piece of polystyren CARFULLY and start sanding in a figure of 8

Yes it will. so you have to decide whats a higher priority to you, warranty, or overclocking... im sure you can geuss where we all stand on this subject matter....

About the grits, i suggest 400,600,800,1000, than anything you want after that. Even use some barraso with your finger for the final "bling"... Its most important to use the close grits in the beginning of that lapping because thats when your taking most of the metal off, and it leaves deeper grooves which are dfficult to remove of you just skip from say 600 to 1000...

Suggestion for lapping the cpu: If you DO decide to do it, get a piece of faom of some sort, and push the pins of the cpu into the foam, this will protect all the pins from bending during the lapping process...

Good luck on the lap job and enjoy lower temps!

Will i see a noticeable difference if i just lap my HSF?

cuz right now im not doing any extreme OC'ing (not sure sys is totally stable @ stock, hehe. I'm rebuilding it form scratch, software wise, today probly) and my temps arent really even warm...

I think it's mostly the IHS that needs to be lapped. When you first begin to lap it, you'll see that the IHS kinda ditches in in the middle. The edges will become copper before the center, meaning that it kinda dips in the center. This is bad because the center is where the core is, and you want it as flat against the HSF as possible.

Also, is that 2000 grit rubbed on another 2000 grit = 4000 grit true?

Yes. You should see a difference with just the lapping of the HSF. Probably just around a few degrees c load... but still a difference. Just lapp the HSF, then when you really get serious lapp the IHS if you wish.
