So I finished up lapping my H50 and cpu today and I'm a lil disappointed. Temps didn't change much at all. I'm trying to get an IBT test to run now at the same gflops as my unlapped test but they seem to be a bit more now and obviously driving temps up at the same time. I'll post my results once I can get a test with the same gflops as before just so I can accurately judge the difference. Heres some pics
These were both fairly flat to begin with so I guess I shouldn't have expect that much from lapping.
This is my unlapped IBT test with ambient temps at 23C and OCZ Freeze
I've reseated 3 times since I've lapped and used shin etsu and ocz freeze and the temps were all within 1C of each other. I also ground down the plastic pieces on the bracket that the bolts go into in an attempt to get a lil more pressure down on the cpu. Considering my oc and somewhat warm ambient temps my max IBT load temps arent that bad but after reading about guys seeing 8-10C drops in temps from lapping I decided to give it a go. My max P95 load temps barely broke 60C unlapped so I wasn't sure how much better I was going to get from lapping. All well it kept me busy for quite a few hours anyways.
