Well I decided to do it, I couldn't resist the urge to get a better OC with it along with of course better temps. Well I thought I would share my experience with all of my friends on here. So sit back relax and enjoy the pictures below and please feel free to let me know what you think. I used something that really helped out with getting it polished more on that in a few.

First I started by marking the CPU with a black marker, first with a big X then I kinda colored the rest of it in.






Then I got some 180 grit sandpaper and put in on my new countertop, and thankfully the wife was asleep and didn't see it hysterical.gif, then I started lapping going slow but very smoothly along the length of the paper.

After 15 minutes:




After 30 minutes:




After 45 minutes:



and there is where it got flat enough I could start on the next stage of the project.

I got some of my 1500 grit sandpaper out and started using it. This thing was almost as smooth as a mirror once I was finished using the 1500 paper here take a look:





Not too shabby I don't think now here is the part I was saying something about at the beginning, you all may think I am insane but it worked perfectly, what I done was got some of my wifes base powder (Makeup Shhh don't tell on me) it is extremely fine so it is great for polishing, I then got a piece of never dull from it's container and I sprinkled just a little bit of the powder onto the CPU and then I used the piece of never dull to stick the powder to (the never dull has a solvent in it that helps it stick to it), then I started massaging the CPU ever so gently for about 30 minutes and here is what it looked like after I done that:





Then I got a new piece of the never dull out and went over it once more, 1: to help make sure there was no residue left over from the powder, 2: just to make sure there was absolutely not a single fine line or micro scratches left, I then got some of my Prep-All cleaner that is used to get any kind of residue from any of the products I used or any oils that I may have gotten on it from my fingers here is the finished results after I cleaned it the rest of the way and let it air dry.



Now of course this is nothing new to most anyone here but I thought it may help someone to get the same results I was able to achieve, which if I do say so is quite remarkable as I hope you can see from the pictures above. Please feel free to make comments or any observations you would like as I am always open to hearing constructive criticism from my fellow Overclockers and PC enthusiasts. Have a great day, happy temps and overclocking.

1 more thing I cannot wait to switch this out with my E8500 just to see how well it helps the temps before the lapping in my Antec 1200 case and the Tuniq Tower with a scythe high CFM fan and my A/C cooling I was getting low teens for idle temps and low to mid 40's for load temps.

Thank you kind sir, used to I wouldn't have been able to do this kind of thing but not being able to do a lot physically anymore I have found it relaxing to do tedious kinds of work like doing this, plus I'm hoping it helps me get a better OC hysterical.gif I'm glad you liked it.

A question though. Isn't it dangerous, I mean, I'd think that lapping would need some pressure, but doesn't it put a lot of pressure on the cpu back, risking smashing those things on the back?




(Silly me, afraid of this but not of putting >1.6v on air on my E6600 during the Forum Warz).

No actually you just barely I mean barely use any kind of pressure at all, and what I did was put 1 finger on each side of those capacitors or whatever they are called you let the sandpaper and the weight of the processor do most of the work for you, that was the easiest way for me of course I have large hands.

From my understanding when lapping a cpu or heatsink you just let the weight of the item do the work, for the reason you dont break anything as well as if you put weight on it, you may put more weight on one side of the cpu causing it to be a uneven surface.

Looks good Tubbs.

Ah, I see. Instead of puting the cpu on a table and "rubbing" it with the sandpaper, you put the sandpaper on the table and do the thing with the cpu.

Beautiful work Tubby.
I need to get some NEVER DULL!
I used CLOVER valve lapping compound a couple of times - way back - that worked great too.
Now get to benching!

Thanks man, I would much rather use Brasso (reminds me of when I was in J.R.O.T.C. in high school and when I was in the military) but all they had the day I went to the store was Never Dull, I will probably switch out CPU's later tonight after dinner if I don't end up back in bed everyone around here has had a stomach virus and of course I had to catch it to. I'll post the results if I get to switch them.

Yes but very fine grit that is why our belt buckles looked like brass colored mirrors, well our schools did at least hysterical.gif sorry just poking fun at you we were a gold star school hehehe. We always had perfect scores on our inspection days plus I got the honors of polishing the Army instructors boots damn I knew I shouldn't have done mine so well grin2.gif

At first with NJROTC i like it, but the second year i used to hate the class, so during the "big" inspection days, i would purposely lock my knees so i would pass out or get real light headed and they would allow me to sit the rest of the time, The guy next to me did it too, but when he became dizzy he didnt unlock his knees and ended up faceplanting on the gym floor. hysterical.gif
BTW if i recall correctly from polishing my rims there is also a brand i believe was Eagle One or something along thsoe lines, its a cotton in a can that works really well with polishing.

I missed one very small micro scratch I missed earlier maybe it was because I was up for almost 24 hours, oh well, so I went over it one more time with some never dull and I got the little booger, have a look.
