Lapping - not so good - Page 5

post #41 of 46
I have been reading this thread and alot of the other ones about this lapping stuff so i had to try it myself. I didnt have anything neat to make a nice pic out of(kinda like the penguin.. ) so i dont have any. I was surprised how easy it was. I lapped my proc and my BT at the same time. My body shop supplier was out of the 2500 grit so i had to stop at 2000 but no matter. Now i dont know what other peoples results have been as far as temp drop, but i had a 30C DROP in temp at full load. I also dropped my idle temp quite a bit(down to 21C right now). Room temp is somewhere between 68 and 72F. Even with my overclock i cant get the proc over 37C(2 threads of FAH) at 100% load. It has been the single best thing that i have done since i bought my BT. It only cost me $6.34 for the sandpaper. I would recommend this to anyone as a cheap and effective mod.

jcharlesr75,

lets see some pics, even if its without some really cool penguins

No start with 320 or 400 and work your way up, 320/400 - 600 - 800 - 1000 - 1500 - 2000 -2500

so start back at the beginning? I orginally started with 400 and while the stratches look bad I dont think (which is probably the main issue, I should just do and not think) I would need to go back to 400.

When you lap your heatsink, you need to spend the most time on the first piece of sandpaper. Get rid of the deep scratches, and make sure the heatsink is perfectly level, before proceeding.
