Lapping the BEASTLY Tuniq Tower: The Guide - Page 2

That's part of what made it end badly... the only way to remove the IHS is to MELT THE SOLDER. Unfortunately, applying enough heat to melt solder also has a 75% chance of melting your CPU along with it.

I lapped my 3.2E and BT.

About a 5C temp drop here...

Lapping is a hit or miss, some people have extremely warped CPU's, some don't.

I thought the whole purpose of lapping was to make the copper base mirror like?

And using several grades of sand paper, from 400 grit to 2000 grit.

I'm thinking in lapping mine but how much of a difference it will make? I'm thinking it may not be that much for the work.

No the whole purpose is to make the surfaces flat. Having a mirror finish just means they are "flatter" than when they are dull. But you will see the majority of temperature decrease just by getting them flat.

Exactly what leimrod said- lapping flattens the surface and when you get it near perfectly flat, and not only flat, but with very minimal valleys and ridges along the surface you get a reflective/ minimally distortive surface. But even with 2000 grit sandpaper I could see I wasn't going to end up with a mirror, but it is pretty dang close. You can see in the post that the copper gives a sharp reflection, but still has some direct light scattering. Compared to the previous, however, it was a vast improvement. the factory finish was like fine cordoroy

Ugh, i have a love hate relationship with thermal paste. I think I will get some AS5 and glaze the CPU + HSF, then put just the tiniest amount imagineable on there. Seems like unless I glaze it though, I have a really hard time getting an even covering.
