Haha thanks.
Is 1500grit high enough to get a good "shine"?

I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend ordering sand paper from this guy. I ordered my kit from him, shipping was quick. It even came with a small gift.

Easy PC Kits

Heres a thread I made a while ago. It includes my lapping of my Typhoon VX. I believe it came out pretty good. Not bad for my first time.
Lapped Typhoon VX

You want to lap the Typhoon right, not the CPU ?

If I can, I would like to lap both. With BT not lapped and the crappy thermal paste that came with it, my CPU is at 49 degrees in the BIOS, which seems way too high (I have been having trouble getting vista installed but I get my new hdd by Friday so I am looking around the BIOS a bit, I am new to building). I would like to bring that down quite a bit before I oc it. I have some AS5 but have not opened it yet, I was waiting until I lap it.

Yes 1500 will get you a nice flat shiny surface, not a perfect mirror but lookin good.

I would recommend lapping only the Typhoon. Read a couple of guides, go slow, and DON'T be afraid to ask any questions. You can kill your CPU by lapping it, but you really cant hurt your HS by lapping it unless you really screw it up or don't follow instructions. Also, purchase this thermal paste. AS5

EDIT***Also, remember, BIOS has a pretty decent load to the CPU, so 49 degrees inst too too bad. Lapping your Typhoon and some AS5 will greatly help your temps. At 3.5Ghz, I idle at about 34-37 and load around 49-53

It would be nice if you search first, not kinda hi-jack this guys thread. But anyways...

It is the process of sanding down or smoothing out the bottom of the heatsink, or the top of the CPU heatsink. This gives a better contact between the HS and the CPU, therefore giving you better temperatures.

Read my thread I posted above, there you can see the end results of lapping.

If I end up with a load around 50-55 at a overclock, what will be the expected lifetime of my CPU?
And I think I will just get the sandpaper at my local NAPA auto parts store, unless anyone objects? They have up to 1500 grit paper which seems to be enough and according to a conversion table, 1500 grit is around 12/13 microns which is only a few off the kit. I have some glass from a picture frame and some AS5 as well.
Does anyone have a link to a site that has a detailed guide for lapping that comes with pictures? I looked at Google quickly but couldn't find a detailed site.
I should probably post this in a different section, but this thread is running well so: How high of an overclock will I need on my E6600 so it will not be a bottleneck for my GPU? Higher than 3.2Ghz?
Thanks
Sandy
