Are you implying that this cooler has an innate design/manufacturing defect which prevents it from contacting the CPU surface 100% for optimal cooling?

You're not supposed to have to LAP the damn thing to get it to work great.

Then why not write them a letter or send an email. The H50 is not designed for the mainstream user and since you are saying that the product is fundamentally flawed then why should we have to invest time and cost to bring it up to snuff through lapping?

Because it is an automated milling process, any manufacturer of heatsink cannot ensure that all bases are equally flat on all their products, much is similar with an Intel or AMD's heat spreader to randomly have a slight concave or convex deviation depending on the chip.

Besides, lapping your H50(or all Corsair Hydro Series products) doesnt void the warranty as stated here in Corsair forums by a hardware guru.

Lucky.

Though, I'd check it again with a different tool, you may be blocking the light from all corners as it is the center of the base that is not flat. =P

You guys have an interesting understanding of "flat".

I need to re-apply thermal compound to my H50, Ill check it with my micrometers when I do.
