I also just cleaned the paste off the CPU before sending it back, you know I don't think the RMA dept would want a CPU with dried/caked on TIM returned so I made it clean for them. Sure you can't test it for having aftermarket TIM on it but I promise I didn't use aftermarket TIM...
true true, then he can lapp it and if it fails he can burn it in a fire and say that i did that he heard the fan rev up and then tho whole chip started burning

I lap everything once exposed to the light... Cpus and definitely every heatsink. My 1055t was a little bit uneven but the xeon in my sig rig was very uneven.

My userpic is me using an endmill to make a chipset heatsink flat. It was miserable as delivered.

Ok I'm finally ready to start this little project.

My appologies, but my local hardware store was out of 2000 grit sandy paper.


I'm going to start off with lapping the Corsair A70 first, checking results, and then lapping the CPU.

Lets get started:

Ya pics of that A70 with a mirrow finish.
If this works im gonna lap my A70
post #29 of 35
Just lapped my 1050T today starting with 600 grit then going 800/1000/1500/2000. So far I have only noticed maybe 2oC difference in temp. Have to check and see if I put enough or two much thermal compound.

Here we go: (my camera kinda sucks, so i took the best shots i could)

These pics are of the hs before any work was done, just cleaned the goop off.




The main essential components



Pics of 400 grit, after 40mins of sanding in different directions then ending with this.



800 grit after 15 mins



Finally 2000 after 10 mins





As far as temprature difference goes, i've noticed 2.5c on full load and 2-3c on idle

This works for me, lapping... what a mess! haha but imho i think it's worth it
