Completely correct. Shiny is only for those obsessed with ... shiny objects

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get my dictionary... ok, here we go.. W...mmm War... ahh ... ok.. irrelevant to me

Not likely, overclocking Does not in anyway void a warranty unless ur foolish enough to tell the manufacture you overclocked it.

I personally only use 200, 400, 800 and 1500 grit.... shiny is not at all necessary - it just needs to be flat and "shiny" enough to suggest that the surface is smooth

Yep... again, the manufacturer will be looking for VISIBLE signs of abuse that would have lead to the product malfunctioning - to them, lapping would be more reason to void your RMA request than toasting it by excessively overclocking with sub-par cooling

About 25-35 minutes on 600 grit to det it good n flat, I use a razor to check for indentation....

Then about 20-30 minutes on 1500 grit dry to take out lines.......

before 3.15 @ 1.39v load temps 68/68/60/60

after 3.40 @ 1.45v load tems 60/60/55/55




Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - 259$ (when i bought it)
Sand paper 600 / 1500 - about 9.00$
Cold Iced tea and redbull - 6.00$
Seeing you guys talk about warranty's on an overclocking foum's
thread about lapping - priceless

The forums on here make me feel secure about reselling a lapped chip; the rep here means a lot more than fleabay IMHO. If somebody here says something works, and I have a beef, I'm much more confident it would be resolved here.

As far as water, I wet-lap up to 1500, then dry with 1500 and 2000. Once I can see my eye in the chip, that's about good. I like wet-lapping the lower grits because there's less copper to breathe in.

When I'm done, I alcohol the chip almost entirely, dry, shoot with compressed air, and then leave under a 80W lamp for 20 minutes. Dry as a bone, clean as miley cyrus's underwear...
