Intel Warranty Vs. Lapping

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Intel limited warranty states: properly used and installed, it will be free from defects in material and workmanship........

and the if you read the rest of the words in the warranty INTEL is not liable for anything and they don't have to warranty your cpu if they don't want to (in plain english)

So if my cpu hasn't craped out yet it probrobly wont have these defects in material or workmanship....right?

MY Q6600 heatspreader is so cupped that only the very edges touch the heatsink if I didn't have that dot of AS5 in the middle of the CPU it would have fried by now..

cpu CoreTemp0.95 idle @ 39C 39C 37C 37C
should be lower at idle....

I'm ordering a new pump tomarrow because my pump doesn't have enough head for my setup so I know that will help http://www.koolance.com/shop/product...roducts_id=493

lap + new pump should run cooler

To the point I really want to lap my cpu should I do it?
The warranty seems bogus anyways..... or is it?

You're currently using the dot AS5 method? Have you tried the line method? I switched from the dot method to the line method on my dual core and received an instant 4C idle and load temp drops.

I know that there are various ways to apply AS5 on a processor, but I would try the line method if you haven't tried it.

You are better off RMA'ing it. If you get another Q6600 with a salad bowl for a heatspreader, break out the sandpaper.

I'm going to order the premium lapping kit from Easy PC Kits it's cheap $13.00
1000grit to 40 microns and includes a sheet glass...

I have tried the line and the dot for the AS5 But I have a salad bowl for a cpu top....which I'm sure that it works with in the thermal guidlines with the stock cooler but I think thats hot> (not a paris hilton line either)
