Lapping my E6600

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ok, im fed up with my temps being so high. I just got a tuniq and as some of you know, one of the thumbscrews broke. Even when the Tuniq Tower 120 worked i was still getting around 34C and 53C load on stock settings. When i have the stock HSF im getting 44C idle and thats at 2.1ghz ( i had to underclock, the load temps were around 70C). I really really really want to overclock this baby to 3.6 and above. I have a week 29B so i know the chip isnt bad but it has to be really concave. And the tuniq must also be concave. About the lapping, how should i go about it? Should i get the kit, or should i go down to checker and get some sandpaper? What brand of sandpaper should i get? How much of each grit to get? What grits do i need to get? When im lapping on a peice of glass should i lap it wet or dry? How much of a performance difference would i get if i lapped it wet or dry? How should i go about lapping it wet? What should i use to get it wet? Please help me out!

Thnx OC.net!!

just head to your local autozone or whatever and pick up some 320, 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000 grit papers.i would buy at least 3 sheets of each since your gonna be lapping both the tuniq and e6600.i bought a pack of 5 and im glad i did. i ripped a couple of sheets when lapping my zalman.

good luck with the lapping. I might try with mine also...FYI, I have the same stepping and it is incredible, right now Im sitting @3.8 with 1.4 volts, It did 3.4 with @1.23volts. I wish I could go higher but my mobo wont go for it.
