Re-lapping, start @ 200 grit?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I had some time to kill last friday so i decided to "tone-up" my lapping, got my HS and CPU out and figured that, since its already lapped (from 200 - 2000grit), I can just put down some 2000 grit and polish it off.

After I did this, I reset everything and booted up. I was a couple degrees warmer, and after some new AS5 and a re-seat its still running hotter than I'd like (or, rather, hotter than it was before the re-lap).

Could it be the "quick-lap" that's messed things up? Whenever I decide to re-lap, do I need to start over at 200 grit and work up? Or does that matter?

Edit: I'm seeing a difference of 5-10C depending on OC. I used to hold 3.4ghz below 50C on load, now it's ~57-58C. Just some specifics for reference.

Don't orget that it will take a few hours for the thermal paste to do it's stuff and start transferring heat to the hsf. When I lapped my cpu it took a couple of days before I started to see a difference.

I have always had to give the AS5 a week or so to fully settle, I think they say on the Artic Silver website that it takes a while to get to it's full potential. I had to re-seat my heatsink once and after I set it back in my temp went up by 2-3c but, after a couple weeks they came right back down to where they were previously. I wouldn't think it would be that much higher in temps though? 7-8c seems like a lot?

Yes it does, this is from The Arctic Silver Application guide

3) Break-In Period
Due to the unique shape and sizes of the particles in Arctic Silver 5
conductive matrix, it will take a up to 200 hours and several thermal cycles to
achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink
to CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity. (This period will be longer in
a system without a fan on the heatsink or with a low speed fan on the
heatsink.) On systems measuring actual internal core temperatures via the
CPU's internal diode, the measured temperature will often drop 2C to 5C over
this "break-in" period. This break-in will occur during the normal use of the
computer as long as the computer is turned off from time to time and the
interface is allowed to cool to room temperature. Once the break-in is
complete, the computer can be left on if desired.ഊ4) Application Instructions
