Lap or not lap

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a BT and i have 24 idle and around 30 full load, do you think lapping my cpu would make much differnce, also does it make the cpu look really nice, becuase if it does i might practice on some old ones then lap up mine nice and good just so i know i have a nice shiny cpu under that huge BT

Those are like, idle temps. If you lap I doubt you'll notice a difference until you crank the vCore way high.

Yes, lapping always helps... and yes it looks very nice and shiney when done right.. look through my sig at the BT link. I have a pic of my lapped cpu, it a little blurry, but youcan still see its beauty.

You should also lapp the BT, as im sure you noticed its not a very fine machined surface on it, so it will help to lapp the BT aswell.
