    Yes lap it and void your warranty and the hope for a new CPU
  • 33% (18)
    Keep it like it is, and try to fix temp, and if all fails try to return it.

My Tuniq temps will go to 60C easily if I am pushing enough volts to get a stable 400FSB running at full load (orthos).

Just man up and lap the goddamn thing already.

I have been lurking this forum, and recently purchased a C2D 6600... It's from Nov 10, 2006.

Anyway, the surface was convex, and I decided to go through with the "lapping" which really just meant polishing right? My other hobby is cars (Subwru WRX woot) so I had 2000 grit sandpaper in my tool box, and I went out and bought 400 grit.

It's honestly kind of nerverwracking sliding a $300 component back and forth on a dirty, wet surface, but after two hours of sanding and polishing I was able to get both my Zalman and 6600 to have nice, polished surfaces.

Right now i'm at 44 degress idle, 54 degrees under load (Orthos), with ambient temps being around 70 degrees farenheit. I set my CPU voltage to 1.35V at the BIOS, but CPU-Z read between 1.296 and 1.312. Also, I use a Zalamn 9500 with fan controller limiting its speed... aka, i'm using something crappier than the OP's WC setup

Not the best I know, but I'm hoping for better temps after the AS5 cures.

PS: First post!
PSS: Tweaked with the voltage a little and am now idling at 39-40 celsius. Will begin stress testing, woot!

As for the lapping job. It didn't come out the way I wanted, but I made do with what I had. I am gonna be picking more up tomorrow, and redoing it.

And yup I used AS5. So if it cures and drops 3C I am looking at like 48-49C @ 3.7. 1.55 vcore, with both cores folding.
