Actually Lapping in it's original (read automotive) sense was the act of polishing a valve & the corresponding valve seat to the point where the valve/valve seat attained a mirror smooth flat even surface, thus assuring a proper fit/seal between the two.

So, yes, lapping is making 2 surfaces flat so that they seal together better, the mirror surface is a by product or indicator that the lapping has been done properly.

<<10 years army mechanic, lapped valves on everything from generator to 5 ton ammo haulers. (told you I was old !!!)

trivia information... did you know that 2 blocks of identical steel when lapped together will stick to each other without any kind of adhesive or magnetic properties being added. (science project done with machine shop in H.S.)

And what is the force holding them together?

the fact that the 2 blocks have perfectly smooth sides allow for natural adhesion at the molecular level to hapen. When the 2 blocks are put together the only way to pull them apart is to slide them apart.

I don't understand all the principles involved in doing it, I only know it works.

Just got a BT and can not wait to see the temperature improvement over the stock cooler. Your guide came in handy and I think I will do at least the foam mod and I have a Aerocool Turbine 89cfm and Antec tri-cool 120mm to test. Nice idea with the velcro I will do something similar with what I got around the house. Wanting to put it all back in the case so its out of the way. Now its out in open air caseless and it gets annoying working on or around it. I got the older style TT from a local dealer, did not think they made it anymore? I love how it has the screw-downs instead of those stupid Intel famous push-pins.

Whilst I think this guide is fantasticly made, I feel its a little bit pointless to bother with all these modifications. I have a Thermaltake Big Typhoon VX which I didn't lap. All i did was apply the thermal paste provided with the cooler as evenly as possible to the CPU.

I'm running a 3.2GHz CPU on a Q6600 and running a few apps like Windows Messenger, Irfanview, WinAMP and ofcourse Everest Ultimate Edition. And finally, ofcourse, my PC is in a closed case. Ambient temperature around 20 degrees.

Here is my "idle" temp:


29 degrees, no modifications at all to it.
+Rep for you anyway, brialliant guide mate! Keep it up.

Lol@29 degrees. It's core temp that you need to worry about and 43c@idle isn't very good especially as your system specs you are only using 1.275 vcore. Just follow the guide and get your temps down because they are high idle temps.
