You can too lap heatpipe direct touch CPU coolers. Just because one person with half a brain messed up doesn't mean its not possible. A lot of people are out there right now spreading lies about lapping. Well, I won't have that. The picture above is a poor cell phone picture of my Hyper 212+ lapped to razor smoothness. No its not perfect but razor smooth is excellent and it only takes very little TIM to fill the tiny cracks. Without a doubt this is far better than the crater face bottom my heat sink had before I lapped it.
