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.......

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - 259$ (when i bought it)
