Lapping

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I've been reading these forums about lapping and was wondering, if you lap your processor(whatever, the back side) don't you also have to lap your heatsink? And if you don't, won't you not be getting the best results?

Yes, the IHS on your cpu and the bottom of the heatsink to get the full effect of it. It would be almost pointless not to do both. However it does take time and frustration to complete

If your going to lap, you need to do it right. You need to lap the base of your HSF and your processor so that the contact surfaces are flatter. This helps disipate heat better, lapping takes about 4-6 hours and you need to use different grit sandpaper, 200-2000, but, now, to answer your questions. You do not need to lap your HSF but it's recommended since it'll help with temps.

Yes... as Ninja Boy stated.

You might want to consider lapping the HSF first and see if that is satisfactory. If not then lap the CPU IHS.

NOTE: LAPPING YOUR CPU WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.

The next level is IHS removal.

Remember: Do not gamble more than you can lose (applies to IHS lapping (warranty) and IHS removal (buggering it up).

Unfortunately, x2s3w4 did not claim his scholarship. The first person to PM me will get a lapping kit at no charge; but please... only if you have never lapped before. :-)

Done did it already!! Helps a lot, much cooler. But be advised............. write down all the info on your chip!!! It may well disapper by the time you finish. I don't know what my stepping is now, it's all gone.

You're a generous man insulglass, and a credit the hobby! Cudos!
