    I suppose the aluminium parts are the ones that make contact with the CPU?

    I just bought a Volcano 11+. Will be getting around to putting my PC together today, maybe tomorrow. I've heard a little about lapping a heatsink, can anyone tell me what that is/what it's all about?

    don't bother lapping your heatsink / cpu - at this stage it's not something worth bothering with. i think building the pc is much more important right now.

    i have tried most things (extra holes in pcs, hard drive with a window etc) and lapping the heatsink or cpu is just one of those things i think i'll never actually bother doing. (that's why you got thermal paste, to fill all the tiny imperfections in the heatsink)

    that heatsink up top looks AWESOME! I love it

    basically lapping the core/bottom of your heatsink with wet/dry sandpaper upto really fine grades to get a totally smooth finish and iron out all the tiny imperfections of the core. then polish it off with some brasso.

    I always lap my heatsinks. and put such a tiny amount of thermal paste on and get some good results over not lapping it.

    but it is a bit of a perfectionist thing to do. if your heatsink looks perfect then if u dont want to spend the time lapping then dont bother.
