Successful Lapping (X2 720 BE)

Hey all, just sharing that i successfully lapped my CPU. I used 600grit wet/dry paper to get down into the copper on top of the CPU, after that I got it to a mirror finish with 1500 and 2000 grit paper. My idle temps are ~35c to 53c under prime 95. I also have all four cores unlocked and OCed to 3.5ghz. I say a great (almost) free mod.

Should say X3 720 BE in title. oops

there should be a stickied thread for lapped CPUs
yeah, i got excited about modding my proc. this afternoon and totally forgot to take pictures. I also neglected to say that my temps dropped by about 10c from the previous (un-lapped) values.
