stupid question....will lapping the CPU ruin the intel factory warranty? well, it DOES make a whole lot of sense to a noob like my self coz I couldn possibly kill the cpu during my "overclocker in training" process....

Lapping will void your warranty yes, however if it works when you first power it up, odds are it will work until you replace it, unless you push way more volts into it than was designed in which case you are already invalidating the warranty anyway.

The only reason they are not lapped from the factory is it would cost way too much money in manufacturing cost to insure a flat surface.

You don't have to cover the contacts on the back, you can just wipe them off with alcohol when you are done... or if you don't want to take any chances just cover the backside with masking tape.
Oh ok. And masking tape won't leave some residue that that alcohol won't be able to remove?

I just can picture myself somehow ruining the CPU by doing this, and i don't like the idea of voiding my warranty either haha

you're paranoid I can appreciate the concern after all cpu's are not cheap.. however it will be virtually impossible to ruin your cpu doing that. I have found no need to wipe the contacts clean with alchohol if you cover with masking tape as I've never noticed any residue being left behind.. but cleaning it won't hurt it any if you do... Just make sure you use the 98% rubbing alcohol + qtips.. not the 70% variety.

The biggest risk with lapping used to be bending the pins on the backside of the cpu, but they are no longer made that way with socket 775... the pins are located inside the socket on the motherboard no longer the cpu.

Everyone is always nervous the first time they do something, I know I certainly was the first time, but I can almost assure you after you do it the first time, you will probably never go without lapping your cpu again

I agree completely, couldn't have said it better myself. Rep+ for nettwerk!!
