more like there wasn't enough... and also it was a poor distribution of the TIM... probably also because the TRUE's base is very likely not flat even after the lap job...

Looks like he lapped his TRUE copper wrong. It's domed, not flat, probably a worse base then before.

Do NOT lap in a circular motion, and make sure you are using something that is perfectly flat, like a quarter inch plus thick piece of float glass.

You should not have rounded corners on the heatsink base.

I think I lapped the TRUE C pretty well; It was lapped on a coffee table glass up to 2000 grit. The CPU was not flat and I didn't bother to lap it, so it wasn't receiving the TIM well. I put a rice sized blob in the center of the heatsink and seated it, didn't bothering to check it, thinking it would evenly spread out, but it didn't. So either I need to put on more tim, or better, lap the CPU. The 8650 is a joke I made with a friend, it really is a E8600
