Otherwise it looks pretty promising.
on the tuniq it won't really make a big differnece IMO, if you're going to lap the heatsink you pretty much have to lap your cpu as well or else the contact still won't be very good... it's upto you, if you want to void your cpu's warrenty for 3 degrees celcius then go ahead. The only cooler (that i know of) where lapping is actually worth it is my cooler, the base on it is terrible! The difference between my 4 cores is about 15 c!
