lapping amd x2 3800 will it shave 10c?????

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
i am thinking about lapping my x2 3800.. i have a 9500 cnps from zalmam will it conflict .. with the application later ... or will it still go on just as tight?

is it worth it?

if i can shed 10c I can go higher on the overclock .. or should i just wait for water?

It won't conflict with mounting, but do you want to loose your warranty. It can generally give you a 5-7C drop though.

Not 10C, maybe 4-8C... it was worth it for me, I installed a lapped Big Typhoon, AS5, and lapped my x2 3800 and got about a 7-8C drop all across the board..

you should get an artic freezer 64 pro. i boot up at 30C with 1.5vcore. my other computer has the same parts but with the stock hsf and it boots up at ~37. well i did lap mine too.

Perhaps try lapping the Zalman first, and see what gives. Then, if you are not satisfied, lap the CPU. Lapping will void your CPU warranty.

I thought about lapping mine but my overclock is voltage limited. I max out at 43C under load with 1.55vcore. And that is on air with a lapped TTBT.
