Sounds like quite a good list...

 

I've actually switched entirely from AS5 to AS ceramique (thermal performance is about the same, but it lasts longer and is completely non-conducting / capacitive). Just a preference I have.

 

Good luck lapping. Take your time...it'll be worth it. I had work doing optical metallography, so, just be glad you don't have to go that far (1/20 micron finish)!

Kit is from easypckits and contains 400, 600, 800, 1000, 40 micron, 25-20-15 & 10 micron grits plus a peice of glass and easy to understand directions. I had it to 3.4ghz but I am a coward and better safe then sorry all together it was only about $90 and if it saves me from replacing a quad core CPU it's worth it. I will see how high it will go once it's all done.

New items arrived and installed but I had an issue with keeping the heatsink from moving while I was attaching to the MB. I wondered if anyone else had this problem and figured out a solution.
