The kit at EasyPCKits is very nice. I used the one with the glass and was able to use it on both my HSF and IHS.

The result of the IHS can be seen in my avatar.

You will see a drop in temperature from the liquid cooling alone. If you lap your Conroe correctly, you will see a drop in temperatures from that as well.

I wouldn't if I were you. I would never lap a processor unless it was already out of warranty, and even then only if the resale value of it wasn't worth it. The Conroe is too good of a processor to risk lapping it, in my opinion. But then again, if I were made of money, I probably would do it.

Ordered my kit from easypckits.com as well. Awesome fella to work with. I picked up a kit that included some ceramique, but upgraded to AS5; that tube lasts forever (still have much of it). It was a great deal.

I found a Nice 3M Multi Pack of Fine grit sand paper at Auto Zone I think it was $3.50. It has 400, 800, 1000 Grit I used the 800 First then the 1000 Grit. I read you should rub the C.P.U. on the sand paper on a piece of glass. I used a 12" square of a mirror I had (I like to cut them and put them in the bottom of my case). I turned the C.P.U. every few seconds and reverenced circular I could see places where the Nickel would stay after most other parts were copper so I guess it had high and low sports. I read someone use Magic Wadding to polish I had Brass-O so I polished it with paper towels and Brass-O until I could see my face in it. I have only had 24 hours to let the Artic Silver 5 cure and my temps are already 2 Celsius cooler at Full Load running Orthos 74C @3.2 GHz I'm told it takes a week or so for the Thermal Paste to cure.

One small note:

A true "surface plate" made of granite will be ground and polished to exacting tolerances, and is typically used in scientific, manufacturing, and lab applications. Unless you get one that is surplus or second hand somehow, no granite plate will cost only $5.

With the description of "granite, marble, or travertine", this leads me to believe that someone bought a piece of marble tile at a home supply store. Someone might get lucky and fine one that has been polished properly but th eodds are 99.5% against it. They simply are consumer grade and not manufactured to tight finish tolerances.

A glass plate WILL almost certainly be better, no matter what cost and thickness. Thinner glass plate will work just fine if you place them on a surface already reasonably flat such as a table or countertop surface. Pad underneath with a sheet or two of newspaper and you will have a flat surface that is VERY flat.

Occasionally, someone will order a kit without glass due to shipping concerns (like many international customers). Glass can be obtained locally even though I try to offer very reasonable prices. In a tight pinch, you can even "borrow" a small plate from a picture frame if needed. In any case, I do NOT recommend that you lap on acrylic surfaces - they will flex and are too soft IMHO.
