Lapping Success!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well I was a little bit unhappy with my temps on my q6600 so today I decided to lap both my processor and my Big Typhoon. I was a little nervous but thanks to the info on this site I was able to preform a successful lap with a temperature reduction of 7-10 degrees C!!!

I want to thank TheInformationator specifically because his guide on the Big Typhoon was a life saver!!

out of curiosity did you use thermal compound after lapping? I have heard of doing it both ways. Also did you lap the two together using powder or on a flat surface with sandpaper? Im trying to improve my lapping so any input would be great!
