Did a Lap today

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well, I just finished lapping my TRUE 120 and all I can say is WOW.

I've been procrastinating on whether or not to tackle this painful job, saying to myself, “self your temps are just fine, let it go.â€

So, finally after reading every thread, instruction guide and other inter-web article I could find, I decided today was the day. Mind you, I did not get that polished metal look but that wasn't my goal.

Anyway, I did it and I'm done and very pleased with the results. For all the people here at OCN who provided lapping guides, tips and first hand accounts, thank you. Success!

Did you just lap the heatsink or the CPU too? I'm considering lapping my TRUE, but don't really want to risk the CPU

Initially, 3c but I would expect about 5c once the AS5 settles in.

My loads temps were in the low 60's at 3.8Mhz. Now 57c (coretemp) 52c (realtemp) vcore 1.5 in BIOS and 1.42 100% load.

I would go by coretemps reading, your realtemps tj max is 5 to low and are wrong, but aside from that nice job =D

Lapping your $300 proc will add another 2-4° off that all ready low temp...

Good job either way. Back when I had my Opty 165 I lapped my Tuniq and the Opty, I got the lowest temps I could achieve. Ambient.
