Lapped Cpu q6600

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i recently lapped my cpu's ihs and didnt notice a difference in temps.
Sooooo, after a few days of letting the tim sit, and still no huge change, i removed it again and noticed i gave it an uneven lap, with a few scratches on the sides still. I wish i had pics but i forgot and didnt think this would happen but....
This second time i lapped it, I made it PERFECT!!!, shiney and flat as hell*used s small mirror to check flatness.

So when i installed it, my PC wouldnt post.
New it was the cpu because i didnt mess with anything else.
Removed the heatsink and noticed the tim hadnt adjusted LOL.
So the heatsink wasnt touching the cpu directly.
I knew right away what happened, so i removed the socket cover and then put my heatsink on, and it has a really tight clip into my board and finally my PC booted up and posted.

*hint hint*
So this leads me to my final queston.
Is it common and ok for a few of us serious overclockers that we remove the socket cover(the bar/cover that latches to the bottom and holds the cpu down) and run our computers without it.
I did this last night and it has been 14+ hours running like this/
I picked up my case a few times in case i bumped the tower and its still running strong.
My heatsink is holding my cpu to the socket, it now has better contact then before, and my temps idle Are now lke this:

NOW
3.2OC - 1.31vcore
35 - 36 - 36 - 38 ( 6 or 7 hours of idle ) after i went to sleep.

BEFORE
42 - 44 - 44 - 46

How aggressive were you while you lapped the CPU? You may have taken too much material off the top. I'm not sure just how much of the IHS is exposed above the retention mechanism normally.

Just a reminder: When lapping, it's not a matter of how much stuff you can remove and how shiny it is but rather how flat you can make it. It's tempting to put a lot of pressure while lapping. If that's not the case, forgive my forwardness.

Just a thought.

at 3.2 ur at 35,36,36,38....i guess that's ok for air. i haven't lapped mines yet and i'm at 3.5 right now w/ 28,32,32,30 on idle. but idle temps are idle temps should have ran prime 95 while u slept and then see ur load temps cause that's what determines stability. at load my setup hit's low-mid 40's.

If it works it works. But there shouldn't be any reason to not have the locking plate. This draws the cpu socket in contact with the cpu pins. It may not have posted beause the bios may have shut the system down due to cpu
overheating (nice safety feature).

Check Out OneLiveStarfish's Guide to faster lapping

I allways wondered why everyones guide included using 400-600-800-1000 grit, it seems to be redundency.

I used the guide above, 600 grit to get it flat, 1500 grit to get the scratches out, dry with no water.

end result was a change from 3.15 - 1.39v max load temps of 68 to 3.24 - 1.42 max load temps of 58
