When my BT was new, I dont remember seeing any concave or convex
spots on it. It was fairly rough but I figured the AS5 would smooth it out witout lapping. My temps idle right now at 31C at 2.75g, haven't seen it above 44C stressed.
I was more concerned about the weight so I looped velcro through the fan grill supported up above to the psu to take off the cantilevered loading on the mobo.
Worked and still works like a charm.
If I lapped it, I bet it would idle down near 25-27C. Good airflow within the case also really helps. I dread removing the BT because installation wasn't fun.
If it aint broken, dont mess with it!
