Lapped my IHS and Zalman 9500 - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Nice lapping Since your warrenty for your CPU is already gone, why don't you just take off the IHS on your CPU? That will lower the temps much more, but also alot more dangerous then lapping but its worth it from what iv heard.

Did Intel stop soldering the IHS to the die?

My God, man! I've heard that the new AM2 CPUs as well as the 775 LGAS are soldered onto the core. I don't want to risk damaging it like some other guy did to his FX 62. I don't think the extra 3-5c is worth wasting another 230 for an E6400.

They are now? Well I guess no more IHS removals.. You know a guy that damaged his FX-62??

Hehehehe, I still have my little 3800 X2 with its unsoldered core, heehehheee.

I have no idea. I heard that the P4s were soldered, but I had a dead P4 chip that I got from my electronics teacher and I took the IHS off but it wasn't soldered.

36/55 is far more tolerable. IMHO, I would keep it below 59C at full stress-level over long periods of time (6+ hrs).

Remember that AS5 or other TIC's take longer to cure with lapped surfaces. Your temps should drop even further within the next 10 days (not just because of the weather change...)

I have a lapped E6400 / Noctua 120 with 1.36 on the core, now runs at 32/44 and up to 48 w/ Prime95 x2 @ 12 hours.

Prior to my lapping my temps were similar to yours.

As mentioned before, make sure that you have good air circulation. It isn't impossible to get it with 80's, but it will be much easier and quieter with some 120's. I recommend Silverstone FM121 (110 CFM @ 2400 - 39 dBa). At 1200 RPM's the fans perform very well.

Good job on the lapping...were you nervous?

Thanks. Yeah, I might get the Silverstone fan (heard its pretty decent). I guess I'll have to wait for the AS5 to cure. And yes, I was nervous . But after the success, I discovered that with proper care and handling, there should be no risks!

Some dude at xtremesystems.org forum accidently removed his IHS without knowing that his FX 62 was soldered. He posted various deadly pics of his cpu Kinda feel sorry for the guy. Heard he dropped a grand on that sucker 3 months ago. But he says its okay, since he's going conroe
post #18 of 22
I also read that you can remove soldered IHSs by raising the temp to 90C+ (it melts at about that temperature).
post #19 of 22
Hmm, I think my conroe is too young yet to be removing the IHS but that lap job looked great. I ordered a kit from easypc also so I'll try that and hopefully have my CPU waterblock by then! Not sure if I'll attempt to lap the Apogee block, does anyone have any experience as to the "flatness" of those water blocks??

I should have thought you'd want to lap, your not meant to have a giant x in the middle of it.
