no need to do, unless you want 2-3 degree C drop

No, lapping is not required. My TRUE is not lapped, but I'm planning on doing it soon since I have time over the summer. The whole point of lapping the TRUE and the CPU IHS is to improve the contact between the two. I'll use brackets to illustrate. )(, both convex. (), both concave. ((, one concave & one convex. )), one convex & one concave. ([, one concave & one flat. )[, one convex & one flat. ]), one flat & one concave. ](, one flat & one convex. ][, both flat, as you can see this provides the best contact, which provides the best thermal transfer, which decreases temps, this is what is achieved by lapping the CPU IHS & the contact plate of the cooler.
BAM!

2 - 3 c down in temperature !

but i seen another thread a temp drop of arond 7 - 8 c



robilar u hav used a thermalright 120 extreme ryt ?
and i assume u lapped!
wat was the temp diff?

7-8 degree drop was probably for both IHS and TRUE sink..
I was referring to just TRUE sink

but your mileage will vary..

Results will vary due to a great number of factors involved. If the contact between the CPU IHS & the TRUE are very bad then lapping will show a marked improvement. The application of the thermal interface material could have improved the second time. The ambient temperature(temperature in the room) could have dropped, this is a very important factor, basically the CPU will increase in heat a certain amount over ambient, and the capacity of the cooler to dissipate that heat determines the thermal delta, or increase over ambient. Someone in Antarctica will get vastly different temperatures than someone in India.

You want a 38mm thick fan...
