She? Thats what i need, a girl that loves computers and gaming LOL

Well what a dissapointing day so far. I managed to Lap my CPU and I am fairly confident I did a decent job, it was reflecting like a mirror with no nickel(?) plating on top. I tried to lap the H50 but it was only getting the edges for some reason so I decided to not do it.

So with the fan shroud added on and the CPU lapped, my CPU temp went up from 54c -> 59c, and my core temps went up from 54c -> 56.5c

Oi, maybe I should get a Rasa kit

Did you check your CPU for flatness? And what TIM are you using?

Test for flatness? Well I was putting on the glass I had and it was like sucking to it almost. And I am using the MX-4 and have been. ><

Erm mate I think you missed the point of lapping. The idea is to remove any bowing or unnevenness of the 2 surfaces, so the fact your only hitting the edge means the h50 is not flat. Thus you need to lap it untill it is flat, A good way to tell is to draw on it with drywipe marker and then rub it across the grit paper while its on a perfectly flat surface (glass is good) once there is no dry wipe left then you should have a flat surface.

Edit: sounds like you have the cpu done fine now get the h50 to the same point.

Check your Thermal paste too much or too little will cause problems, the h50 will not give you a massive boost temp wise from a high quality air cooler (nor these days will any water system unless you add in active cooling) air coolers these days are just so big and advanced that the advantage in liquid is more vollume than actual temps.

moving from my noctua to my full custom water loop I droped 2c which I barely anything.

I was thinking I should have kept going with the H50 but I wasn't sure, it was really awkward to try to sand it because it wouldn't stay flat with the rad moving around and what not.

I reseated the H50 twice, the first time it was totally covering the CPU and this time I may put a bit excess on which I should clean up and reseat once again.

Maybe I should hit up the auto store near my house and get some more sand paper for the H50, i ran out using it on the CPU

This is why I never bothered lapping my h70 when I used it proper PITA to do also It was in a rig I wasnt thrashing very hard so ^^. Which Air cooler were you moving from? Like I said moving from say a dh14 to a h50 I would be suprised if you saw an improvement at all unless your case is warm.

I moved from a Hyper 212+ Push/Pull with 2 Blademasters. And when I went to the H50 I maybe only lost about 2c. But now I am not sure oi I feel like I totally effed up my cpu now that its running warmer .

I might look at Rasa kits in a few weeks possibly, not sure yet. I'm not buying a new CPU till the bulldozer MAYBE.

Im suprised your seeing a temperature increase, Is that your delta or just overall load temp? because with weather (at least where I am in the uk) going from rain, frost and fog to really rather unseasonaly sunny my overall temps have risen in line with rising ambient temps
