I think I have the first generation true extreme with 6 heat pipes on each end, purchased apr 2008 so about year and half ago.
Anyways, I lapped it when I first got it and I admit it was a rush job as I was too excited to have it installed on my new build.
temps 34 idle and 48 full load
So I was bored today and decided to take my time and re-lap it to a mirror finish.
temps 33 idle and 49 full load
Dropped a degree on idle but increased a degree on full load
Does this make sense?
seeing that 1.5 years went by, how much degree differnce would I get with current HS like prolimatech megahalems and noctua etc...worth an upgrade?
