Yup, same thing. I called evga and they said it's normal. Hmm I reseated the hs 3 times, using different amount of thermal paste, but all the results are very similar.

some times you need to wait a few days so it can go through some "heat" cycles that way the Thermal past can be "absorbed" while it will work right away optimal performance will take a little longer.

i sure hope so because I used noctua thermal paste i knew i should have gotten IC7

its just the thermal past getting into all the imperfections... another thing you can try to do is polish the CPU, i am not real familiar on what precautions need to be taken but have seen people make the top look like a mirror... that would help!

Yes, lapping will void the warranty and decrease the re-sale value of your CPU.

It's worth it. I have yet to see a CPU go bad on me. I have lapped every one of my CPU's. It drops the temp down considerably. Up to 10 degrees celsius, depending on the CPU. My 920 D0 dropped at least 6 degrees celsius on my load temps.

I wouldn't dream of disputing what you say I just find it really hard to imagine that lapping can make such a big difference. I mean cpu's faces might not be absolutely micrometer perfect but they must be good enough for the TIM to make up the difference.

Like I said I'm not doubting your word but boy does 6C seem a big difference to attribute just to lapping. Is it possible that after the lapping you just got a better TIM distribution or a more even pressure screwing the cooler down?

Hey, don't take my word for it. Research it and see for yourself.
Most CPU's have a curvature to them. Especially Intel CPU's.
Curvature equals uneven contact with the heat sink. Hence the higher temps. You can reapply the TIM and reseat the HS all you want. It won't make a difference. My overclocked E4300 dropped by 9 degrees once i lapped it.
