Can you post your method or something about how you lapped your CPU and cooler in a bit more detail. I have a TRUE coming in a couple days lapped from CrazyPC and I have my Q6600 half lapped. I never finished because I ran out of sand paper. My ASUS cooler was kind of tough for me to lap. I plan to finish up the Q6600 lapping.
Did you use any water, soap, or that kind of stuff? It looks like you did it dry without any extra things, but I just want to be sure.
Sure no problem, my ambient temps in my computer room fluctuate from 22-24 in the daytime to 18-21 at night.
As for my method, I have tried Oil,Water, and dry, and I prefer dry sanding... Yes I dry sanded my Q6600 for that shine. The best way I have found to Lap is on the lower Grits 400-1000 use a figure 8 pattern Rotating the CPU every 10-15 cycles. Then for the Higher grits 1500-2000 using a straight up and down pattern rotating the CPU every 10-15 Cycles.... NOTE that when your finish becomes higher towards the end of the 2000 grit, you will start to notice that the Shine dulls when you rotate the CPU, so My recomendation is to do a cycle of about 30 at the end using 1 grain direction, not rotating the CPU also pressing gently, the idea is to eliminate as many of the fine scratches as possible, pressing lightly will help.
