my first lapping!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, had an old Core duo sitting around in my garage so I thought I'd give it a bit of lapping before moving on to my 2700k thumb.gif

700

pretty happy with the shine biggrin.gif still a bit misty round the edges but as I'm not going to be using this CPU only did one buffing with 1200.

Anyway, cheers, krs

Shiny is not important. Smooth and flat are what is important. It's usually worth a couple degrees C, but it's fun if you know how to do it properly. thumb.gif

would not a shiny surface imply a very flat surface anyway though?!

I read a few guides before I started but any tips would be greatly appreciated wink.gif

as for the temps, after giving lapping a go with the old core duo, I had a go on my 2700k and have been able to push up my overclock to 5 GHz with temps lower than my previous 4.9 GHz overclock thumb.gif

haha! the staff members at hardware stores in Australia are generally very helpful in trying to assist you, so I got a perverse sense of joy when I told the guy at Bunnings why I needed the sandpaper biggrin.gif

No shiny doesn't denote flat at all, just shiny. It's also difficult to keep the surface flat as you go to finer grit abrasives. As long as it's working good, enjoy. thumb.gif
