    we all have our little foibles.

    Why did it have to be returned then?

    Thank God for that, for a moment I thought he might have attacked it with a dremel to remove it's concave-ness

    9 degrees is nice!

    I think I am going to do this sometime with my heatsink. I don't think I would ever do it on my CPU though.

    I should ask though anyway.... how do you hold the CPU while you lap it? Do you use some kind of vice or something? Or just rest it on some foam, pins down, or something?

    I could really do with a bolt through kit. Where could I buy one? Also, do you just pull the plastic pins out of an existing heatsink, and then fit the bolts in instead?

    This is a really, really stupid noobish sort of question, but maybe the manufacturers leave the sole plates of their heatsinks rough for a reason? Really stupid idea, I know.

    Let's assume that copper conducts extremely well. Let's also assume that thermal compound conducts well, but less well than copper. Part of what causes the problem is the interface where these contact each other. If that's rough, then it increases the surface area of the interface, which increases the thermal conductivity. That gets balanced by the thicker layer of thermal compound required if the surfaces are rough.

    It's interesting that the OP got only a marginal drop in temperature from lapping just the heatsink.

    You can get a thermalright bolt thru kit from kustompcs for less than a fiver.

    If you are careful, you can remove the pins with your fingers and a small flat screwdriver, try not to remove your fingers though, because if you do that, you wont be able to screw the heatsink back on, thus rendering the job pointless.

    Cool thank you Never visited Kustompcs, so I'll check them out. And thanks for the tip about my fingers. I will be extra careful because I could really do with keeping them. They fit my nostrils perfectly.

    Seriously, I started out w/ just the HS for the cost reason as well and after that was successful, moved on to the CPU. I also don't agree with the phrase, "ruining a good CPU." It runs much cooler now with no ill effects so it's hardly ruined. The warranty on the other hand...

    Im one of the stupid ones who will buy expensive hardware and come close to killing it within hours.
    I dont have the money really, but I sure as hell enjoy it
