Lapping Review

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I had been reading the lapping faq's and looking at some results and decided to give it a try.



idle temps are about the same so far and load temps dropped from 41-42C to 38-39C (edit: these temps were only after a couple of mins. actual temps after a few hours were around 41), I also went from AS5 to some generic thermal grease that zalman ships, so i guess temps could get even better (does as5 really make that much of a difference over generic thermal grease?). At least its shiny

That looks great! I regret saying this but it looks better than mine. What grit did you use to finish it? Also how long did it take?

I'd just pop the top off. That actually makes a difference in temps...and is MUCH easier.

Thanks alot, started w/ 220-400-1000-2000, took about a 1/2 hr. first try at boot comp instantly died, scared me reall bad, realized i didn't have the cpu fan plugged, huge relief and time for a beer. what about the as5? Couldn't find my old tube. I think i will wait to pop the top, the scare after this was enough for now.

I think AS5 does actually make temps better, since you have it lapped it wouldn't make as big a difference as if it wasn't since there are many fewer gaps and scratches in the IHS. If you can find it I would recommend that you use it.

man thats a sexy lapp, im jealous, can i pay you to mail me that leftover sandpaper?

lol sideburns, removing the IHS is plain scary for most people, is worth it

That was the order of the day some time ago. The resin that seals the CPU inhibits thermal transfer and people would lap them down to just removing the black film which had the print or CPU type, etc...!

Well i cant PM or email ypu
SO :

all of the grits you used to lapp your CPU, 220-2000 right?
you can fit it into a regular large manilla envelope i think.
$5-10? ok or do you want more
cuz I have no clue where to buy this stuff locally

and also, you really arent supposed to be selling stuff in your sig, I just was in a debate about that today
you will need to take them out of your sig until you have 75 rep sorry man
or you can wait till a mod or admin yells at you

Autozone has 1000 and 2000 and Lowes or Home Depot has everything else, they might even have the 1000 and 2000 but my Lowes didn't. Should be $10-$15 to buy each type you need.
