Lapping TRUE black edition and Q6600. - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
So when do I know when to use another grit? I know when using a low grit, what I want to do is remove all the nickel then when the nickel plating is completely remove, what I do is do the razor blade test to see if it's well leveled, I wonder if this theory is right.

Sand away all the nickel and make sure the surface is flat with the 220 like you said. Then turn the heatsink 90 degrees and start sanding with the next grit. Sand with that one till the marks from the 220 are gone. Then turn 90 degrees and go to the next grit so on and so forth ;-)

I heard someone mention the other day that the paste that comes with the TRUE is pretty good, they said they had a link but never posted it. Anyone have any info about it?

Make sure to clean up ur surfaces after each run. That way stray sand won't catch.

Errrr it was me that said chill factor is good choice, not sure how accurate are the tests, but here they are. Simply fights straight on with the AS5. If you think it is better or worse, it's a matter of opinion.

i was in the process of lapping the IFX-14
I lapped it for 2-2.5 hours using 320 most of the time, yes 320 GRID, you'd think it's fast right?

It is still not flat, and gawd the IFX and sharp and hard to hold. It's like that against my lapped Q6600



My mobo is on RMA now so I'll have time to make it completely flat
