Lapping questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What's the difference between wet lapping and dry lapping?

When I'm done, will alcohol solution and paper towels be enough to clean off the metal sludge on the processor and heatsink?


BTW, let's say I use 5"x5" sandpaper... 400 grit, 800 grit, and 1200 grit. How many sheets would I need for a regular sized heatsink?

Not too sure about the difference, except one is wet...

I used all dry and used 400, 1000, 1500 and 2000 and a buffing compound to shine both the processor and heatsink. And a 5x5 piece should be good for each grit. Be sure to lap on a piece of glass and tape it down to something flat. Oh yeah, just one sheet of each will be good, just blow the stuff off after you are done lapping.

Happy Lapping!
