if you cpu isnt flat already then it will yeild results. how big is dependent on how well you do it and to what grit you go to. its an art basically.
I have never lapped a cpu but have done 2x heatsinks now and both times it was 4degree or more. (6 on the h50).
I dont know a single person to lap a gpu but I just did a reseat on mine and both the chip and the heatsink was perfectly flat (i checked
you could still do a clean and reseat of the gpu. What about a total clean of the case or maybe take the whole thing down and paint or something? theres always something to do with a comp.
