Just Lapped my 2.4a prescott

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
as the topic says i just finished up lapping my prescott a little bit ago and im amazed at the differance this made i dropped about 4 degrees off my processor and i cant wait to see what the temps run like after the AS5 cures and man it was simple as heck to do took about an hour or so to do everything i simply read the faq from this site nice one i might add i didnt quite get it as polished as the one in the fact but it sure did the job i was limited with the paper i had i used 220 440 800 and 1000 still came out pretty nice tho thanks again to overclock.net i did take pictures but with the low light levels in the room i worked they didnt turn out quite right i will download these to the pc in a bit and post the good ones up.. by all means if your a serious clocker then you should do this if ya havnt already.. oh i also ran occt once i booted back up i will also note that not only did it drop the temps but it also seemed to take longer to reach higher temps too

Ive done this twice, it works great if you do it right. Dropped 10C off my 820 load temps and 8 off my 920. I didnt get the surface to a mirror finish, but I did get the top flat as glass.

good deal i know the prescotts run really hot so im happy with a 4-5 im sure after the as5 sets in it will probably be around 6-7 cooler at least

For a lapped CPU, do you guys still put thermal paste or just drop the HSF w/o it?

ALWAYS put AS5...even if it's mirror finish.

I'd be more likely to just pop the IHS off. Done it to 2 CPUs, and helped a bunch both times. Dropped like 7 or 8 C load on this CPU with my old heatsink...

It would be pointless to run with out thermal paste. The only time Ive ever heard of not using it would be on phase change systems, as there realy wont be much of a differance between -30 and -45c.

are you kidding me? 15C is a lot of temp...I'm sure it'd help.
