    Yes, lap it. Might even help resale value at OCN.

    No, don't, it would hurt resale value too much.

I wish I ran into you earlier. I hate to lap, I did it once and it took so long and it didn't even come out as nice as others I have seen. I just ordered an Ultra 120 Extreme hand lapped, but I had to pay a bunch extra for it. If you do a real niec job, I bet you could buy heatsinks, lap them, and sell them for extra $.

Hah pretty much. Although we haven't hit 100 here yet, it's an unusually cool summer.
For the most part it has only gotten to the 90s... But it's not the temperature that gets you, it's the humidity hah.

ATM the highest it gets is about 85 which is really cool for us. We have a cold front atm with lots of rain and clouds so it feels nice

It's a good idea but when you actually work out all the costs...
About $7+ just to ship it back and forth. Then lapping can take anywhere from 1-4 hours. Multiply that by minimum wage and that's a lot just to pay someone to lap your heatsink / cpu lol.
Tankguys do it exactly that though. But i believe them to be out...

I say lap it! I lapped my E6420 and Ultra 120 Extreme, and my temps went down by about 8C. The lap-job on the 120 Extreme, though, was pretty bad, so I assume if I went at it again I'd be able to fix it up nicely.

Lap it if you want, I would get bored out of my mind doing it though . It won't hurt resell value and as you will get probably -5C you might as well.

I will probably lap my Thermaltake 120 Ultra when I buy one although it will bore me out of my mind!
