Thanks for the response.

Can anyone else confirm that it's completely safe to cover the pins of my CPU (the entire pin side) with painter's tape? I don't want any adhesive or anything getting on the pins. If so, I'm going to go out and buy some. =)

Thanks again everyone!

Just wanted to bump this up one time because I would love to get another person or two's opinion regarding whether it is completely 100% safe to stick painter's tape all over the pin side of my Q6600 to keep it safe during lapping. I'm already slightly nervous about lapping so I just wanted to make sure that painter's tape is absolutely 100% safe.

Well I know that painters tape is made to not get any adhesive on the material it is sticking to once its removed, but i would still question if it was okay to stick it on there at all. Not sure.


Also can someone fill me in, what is lapping and what does it do?

Many heatsinks and CPUs do not come 100% even out of the box, therefor their heat transfer is not as optimal as it could be if it were straight. Lapping is essentially using sand paper on the base of your heatsink or on your CPU's heatspreader to make them more even so they have better contact.

Thanks for your response btw. Anyone else know if it's 100% safe to stick painter's tape on the pin side of my Q6600? I need to be absolutely sure before I do it, lol.
