Anyone sand OFF a C2D IHS?? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
@Martinm210 - nice result w/ that lapping... you might wanna try cutting the sand paper into thin strips in the future. Helps to make things a little more manageable and maximize the surface area on the sand paper.

That's a sweet lap job. I've taken a big interest in this thread, hope it all works out well. Is that mirror shine from 600 grit?

Probably something like 2500 grit and brasso...

Thanks, I really didn't gain anything from what I can tell, but the AS5 still hasn't cured out yet either.

My finishing consists of 600 grit followed by a little polishing with some Mothers polish. It takes a little more polishing than I would like with 600, you'd be better off with some 800 or 1000 grit first, but it works ok. The mothers is actually pretty gritty, but if you use some paper towel to spread it and polish with the grit will hide in the paper, then you can use the finer paste to finish it off.

Anyhow I've heard removing the IHS is worth 2-3C, this probably depends on what type of water block or HSF you have.

Anyway, I'll continue the effort maybe next week after my thumb revives.. So far, so good...hand sanding doesn't create enough heat to cause any problems. After I start seeing that I'm getting close I'll probably switch over to the 600 grit to slow the already slow process down. From what I've heard the solder is supposed to be fairly easy to remove from the people that have removed the IHS with heat.

Sure doing this has some risk involved, but so does overclocking and watercooling...all part of the hobby

Thanks!
In the end of all this I did get some good gains, but not until I bowed my fuzion, then I dropped about 3C. I'd go for a quad too if I had the extra cash.
