Complete: Lapping Q6600 & TRUE - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I just lapped my E6400 and my TT120 and 6 hours of sanding it took. Ill never do it again. Not sure its worth the effort. That TT120 is not only awkward in your case, its REALLY awkward to try and keep sanding level. lol I just booted at stock voltages and settings and im 42, 39 on my C2D which is the exact same as my temps were before lapping. what a waste of time that was. lol oh well

I dunno, I spent 4 hours on the TT120 alone with the easypc kit. Used every piece of paper from 400 to the micro stuff. To me its not worth the hassle. Ill let my cpu run a tad hotter before I put myself through that again. I mean thats what AS5 is for to fill in the gap.

I used this guide here.
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...rops-10-a.html

I used the 12" x 12" tile you see in the picture and pushed it all the way to the top and pulled it all the way down (full strokes). If I had to do it all over again I would use 220 to start sanding the HSF. The metal is much harder to work with and 400 was a bit to fine. I had to use the whole pack to get it flat. 400 grit is the perfect place to start on your CPU though.

Hint: You won't find higher than 600 grit sand paper at your local Home Depot or Lowes. You will need to go to a Auto Parts Store. Autozone had up to 1000 and O'Rielly had up to 1200/1500/2000, the latter two where "upstairs" in storage and I had to ask for them.

It takes 1500 at least to get a mirror shine and 2000 will just be overkill SUPER shiny (which you mind as well do after 4 hours lapping). I personally enjoyed learning to lap. I was hesitant at first but buy the time I was done I was quite comfortable.

Tip: Use full strokes the length of the sand paper and rotate 45 degrees every 30 secs or so (usually 10-15 passes). I drew a cross on both before I started and made sure I was keeping it flat through the whole back/forth motion.

You will start to notice when it gets flat because the sanding streaks will run across the full surface in whatever direction you are sanding. When it is not completely flat yet you will see different patterns, indicating that the sand paper hit different sections of the surface at different times.

After reading the reviews on the TRUE I knew I was going to have to lap it. I had a TT 120 w/ the stock fan OC'ed to 3.2 and it ran about 55C after the STG set. The vcore was set 1.39v (bios). Right now, at 1.48v, folding with my hottest cores occasionally peaking into the 60's for a moment. Even with a G0, you cant run this high of an OC without lapping BOTH CPU and TRUE.
