Dezixn's Laping Results!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Unfortunately my camera ran out of power when i finished the lapping on my TT120 and E6600. I got a picture of the before and one shot of the CPU half way through the lapping but that's no good without the final shot So no pictures this time

I lapped my E6600 to a nice mirror finish. Almost a perfect mirror finish. This baby was concave to start with.

I re-lapped my TT120. For some reason the center of it was concave! I couldn't believe it, because i know i did a good job when i lapped it before.

I almost got them perfect enough for my TT120 to be able to pick up my E6600 dry. I could lift it a few inches before it fell. I almost pulled a stunt like the Informationator lol. I would have too but Walmart stopped carrying sand paper higher than 400 grit! I ended up using a small old and used 2000 grit sheet i had left over. Had i more 2000 grit i could have pulled it off.

I was also going to try to run my E6600 with the TT120 on top with no thermal paste, and i think it might have worked, but... As anyone with a TT120 knows, it's a pain in the but to screw it into place. Combine that with the Northbridge / mosfet cooler on the ASUS P5W Deluxe and you have a giant pain in the but. So i removed that northbridge / mosfet cooler so i could put my TT120 on perfectly. So that ruined my opportunity to copy the Informationator.

Finally using Audi's AS5 method i applied paste to my beautiful E6600 and my northbridge. Btw that stuff they put on the northbridge is crap! I had to scrape it off with my fingernails and tweezers. I don't remember my Nbridge temp before, but i know i could barely feel any head on the heatsink. Now i actually feel more heat, so i know i made a bid difference there.

Results...
At a 27-28C Ambient temp...


Before:
Idle at 44-45
Load at about 58C

After:
Idle at 37C
Load at 47C


Nice temp difference eh? About 10C off load! One thing i notice now is that instead of reaching my max temps instantly, is that it actually takes a minute or so to reach my max temp, the same way watercooling set ups take time to reach their max temp.


Sorry about the no pictures I had a good one i was going to take also. I was going to take a picture of my E6600 reflecting my TT120 reflecting me lol. But i couldn't stand my computer being in pieces any longer.

Now i feel much better about folding during this summer heat!

Just sell it at OCN or to a friend and it should be just fine.

Might as well lap once you have your CPU for a few months to make sure you won't be needing that warranty
