HELP--I think I lapped my q6600 too much. Now heatsink isn't making contact with CPU!

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I lapped my CPU and now when I reseat it in the computer and put the heatsink on top I don't think the HS is touching the IHS because I can hear a loud scraping sound when I rotate it a few degrees to even out the thermal paste.

The motherboard is an Abit ip35 pro and I just lapped my Q6600--with a tuniq tower 120. I think the ihs is lower than the clip. I don't think there is contact between them!

Ahhh makes me sad to see a fellow buffalonian over lap their IHS, I think you can remove that metal that sits over the cpu and screw it down real tight

This is not good! I'm afraid to turn on my PC the CPU could die without a heatsink on it. What is a pressure mod? Do i need to break off the clip that folds down over the cpu? It seems kind of useless anyway.

ONLY USE 2 WASHERS on EACH 3 may be to much

Adding a penny/washer onto the retention mechanism for oyur Heatsink to add more mounting pressure. That is, more pressure against the CPU.
