Excellent point! I doubt, seriously, if any concavation is an undetected production flaw. Rep+ for you.

Also worth noting, while lapping does help in many cases, if there is something wrong with your h50 you will most likely void your warranty lapping it. Better to at least wait until you hear back from Corsair.

Lapping the H50 should be no problem and you will not void the warranty. We have not tested lapped vs unlapped so I would not know if the difference would be significant.
