Also, I do the 400 grit to 2000 grit lapping as described in many tutorials... (maybe I like shinny things)
The 7 or 8 CPU's I've lapped, have all been high on edges AND high in center...
Many blocks are convex, this so when you tight it down in the corners it will sit flat...
Sorry, I'm not taking my loop apart for a picture!
My CPU was hollow in the middle, now how could I check if my heatsink is convex or what ? I need a piece of glass maybe..
@Megaman, I know about swifttech I have my eyes on their products, the thing though, would my performance will be significantly better, even say with a h240x ? for instance would I be able to get this chip to 4.9-5 (assuming it handles it of course) with safe temps ?
The thing is if I would go watercooling I would want total overkill performance, not just gain 3 degrees
, because I have seen benchmarks and many AIO watercooling kits do barely better than a NHD15, and in many reviews the NHD14 is like similar to the 15 or 1-2 less degrees.
But of course keeping this case is out of the equation if i go watercooling.
Also going watercooling now with Skylake arround the corner would make sense, so that I get arround testing watercooling on those parts, not brand new parts lol, which would bring me more confidence in the watercooling area !
I just started working after years of nonactivity lol so I'm gonna let myself go a bit with PC parts soon.. it's why I kinda wanted to get Skylake, also tempted by a 144hz IPS monitor !
me go full crazy mode

Sweet man very sweet ! this all seems to fit in a pretty small case too, curious about your tempsEdited by StrongForce - 5/13/15 at 1:54am
