May need to lap or bow? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I vote for lapping, I lapped my E6700 using the premium kit from easypckits.com. It took a little time, but it was easy, and well worth it. Besides you will get a performance gain from lapping even under normal conditions. Take it down to the copper.

Lapping is good and some more nuts so you can tighten it down properly might fix it by itself...Just tighten it evenly in a diagonal pattern like you would with a head on a motor....I'd leave the springs on it that way you wont over tighten it...

My vote goes to lapping, my E6600 was really rough and uneven. It was much more apparent just how uneven it was when I started lapping it. Lapping is much easier than I expected, doesn't take long at all with some good 600 grit and finer sandpaper.

One other thing you might check if you were to bow your base is the block itself. I keep finding a little bit of crud getting stuck in my CPU pins and that's after flushing the system really well so it's always worth taking the blocks apart now and then to check for some obstructions.

I vote for lapping

Oh wait, this is my thread ;-)

I did (A) tonight with the wing nuts, I can actually vary the tempearture by putting more tension on one pin vs another, not much though.

So, on to (B) Lapping, thanks everyone, I agree, I should lap the e6600, if that doesn't fix it, then, well, that just means I've got a very ineffecient CPU.

Great thoughts, I tried all the suggestions so far
