Tuniq's TX-1 Amt and temp - Page 3

post #21 of 33
Don't pay too much attention to air temps on CPUs, unless they are offering their ambient temps, too.

Refer to this post to see what I mean: CPU Temps are meaningless

Your temps could be lower, just finish that lapping job and give us some updates when it's done!!!

Also, when I'm lapping. Do I need to seperate sand papers into two sections? e.g. 300grit wet(dishwashing soap/jel thingy) 300grit dry. How much jel thingy should I apply to the paper? When I sand it on this wet surface, it seems more like skating than sanding. I see the copper of my TT's IHS come off though, but I think it's too little. I'm just afraid that I'll sand too much.

I have everything from 200-2000, so I'm pretty sure that I'll fine with the supplies. But my question is that I always apply the dishwash soap on the sand paper when lapping?

If you want to sand with wet and dry paper, don't do a 300 grit dry, then 300 grit wet (or vice versa) because all you'd be doing is repeating all the work you had done. Just work your way up. I'd go past 1000 grit if I were you, but that's only if you want a pro finish.

Do it on as smooth a surface as you can get. Good technique is to sand it in one direction 15 times, rotate 90deg, sand 15 times, rotate 90deg etc. All while watching TV of course

Try to keep it form skipping or hanging on anything.

You can also sand in a circle, or really any way that gives a constant amount of pressure so that the object being lapped is being pushed down evenly and doesn't get caught or skip/hang on things.

EDIT

TO answer your question about wet paper, I find it nice to wet the tips of your fingers with water, then wet the sandpaper and sand. When you feel like you need more water, wet your fingertips and spread it around the paper again.

BTW: WEAR A MASK / RESPIRATOR. Copper dust + lungs = fail.

Thx, I never knew about the mask. But when I read guides in OCN, they said use baby oil or dishwasher soap. Why? Because more slippery? So you lap using water like classical sanding technique. When I sanded with soappy thing, I was always unsure if it were sanding right.

I think baby oil or soap would work better, basically it reduces friction, but you'd still be sanding.

It would also make it so you would need to reapply the liquid much less, rather than constantly having to re-wet the sandpaper.

Ah, thx for clarification. Because I treated the soap like the water. That extrapolates that I should have firm feeling of sanding not sliding.

Edit: I was way too cautious on my lapping lol like a newb that never sanded before. I thought sanding machines were dealing with divine figure or something. Different than my other craft experiences.

Keep it somewhere in between. It's called wet sandpaper for a reason. If you were barely wetting it, and getting a full sanding feeling, might as well use dry paper
