how flat is the h50? Should I lap it? - Page 2

post #11 of 36
This was all posted in the H50 thread as well, but that was some time ago now. I'm also sure other H50 owners who lapped theirs would share their gains in that thread as well.

Basic math skills will show you the difference. Same Yate Loons in push/pull, same Shin Etsu G751, same rad location and same ambient, same voltage and OC which was stock. No tricks or foolery.




I didn't lap my chip just the H50 so you're on your own if you ruin the chip.

It involves sanding the base of the heatsink.

This is a good tut he's doing a CPU, but it works the same for a heatsink.

Lapping is using sandpapers of different gradients in order to make your heatsink's base as flat as possible. This helps lower temps.

Go to gentlemen's club.

@advan: I don't see the load/before lap voltage, but I will follow your advice and check the H50 thread. That's a substantial decrease in temperatures, and no, I will not blame you in any way for a ruined chip. I'll do the H50 first, but do you have any idea how much metal I'd have to remove to truly damage the i7? More than I have time and elbow grease for, that's certain!

Yeah I foolishly didn't expand that column, but I guarantee it was exactly the same each time.

As for lapping the i7 I'd ask someone who has done it.

wouldn't it be best to stop after 1000 grit so your TIM has something to sink into?

I don't think so because TIM's purpose is to fill impurities, we still want less impurities as metal on metal contact is better I believe.

No, the lower grit does all the work and the higher grits provide a smooth, clean and even finish. The more flat and even the better the TIM will help thermal dissipation between the HSF and CPU. IIRC I used 800 1000 1200 and 2000 on mine. The lower grit does the most work to get the HSF flat and even then the higher grits refine the finish and evenness of the HSF.



I thought this was hilarious and don't know why it showed like that
