The easiest thing to use to check if it is level is a machinist's ruler, hold it perpendicular on the lapped surface and hold it up to the light, if you can see light through it, then it is not flat. Also I'd note the spreading pattern of the AS5 when you remove the HS, this will give you a better indication as to how uneven it is. Check to see if one side of the CPU IHS has the AS5 spread out more than the other.
To assume makes an ass of u and me.
