955be stock heatsink lapping (used on a 7750 kuma)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Did this months ago, but i will post it here

Materials used:
-Clean washcloth
-400, 600, 1500, 2000 grit sandpaper
-water
-liquid dishsoap (not dishwasher liquid)
-flat surface (in my case, a wooden box)
-heat gun (for drying)
-Sharpie
-955be stock heatsink (using for 7750be)

Please excuse the horrible pictures, couldnt use flash as the reflective copper surface is, obviously, reflective, and my camera doesnt do well with close ups w/o flash (its lame)

Nice. Polishing a turd. My stock heatsink is still in the box, but for a 7750 it should be fine.

i wouldnt exactly call this a "turd"

it fits in my slim ATX case, has heatpipes and a full copper contact plate

its a helluva lot better than most stock heatsinks, thats for damn sure
