Lapped my x2 yesterday


Recommended Posts

Well like Road Runner, I did not see a (big) but little difference in temps.

The method i used for the HSF was the back and forth motion nrg posted.

I started with 400-600-800 and finished with 1000, and used water with a drop of soap.

As you can see i didn't flatten the entire surface. The flat spot was well big enough to contact the IHS.

After i taped up the cpu with some of that blue painters tape.

I did the IHS using the figure 8 motion that Mazakman posted.

I use water with a drop of soap and started with 400 to get to the copper then 600-800 and 1000. The last 10 strokes i switched to the back an forth method. (made it more shiny)

Like RR said whent the compound sets in it may be better than 2c..

Note: my asus probe readings are consistant with nxsensor readings so i have trust in it.

I'm also fairly certain that my slightly better than stock aluminum cooler could be improved.

Nice Although it might not give the kinna temp improvement you would like to see, it definetly is fun to mod/fool around with your hardware

Wasn't thinking it would help that much in my situation. (Fun) =yes. (Warranty)= didn't worry to much about that,- $70 cpu.

I'm turning in to a mod junky. Thanks OCC :D

My next mod is fitting my old volcano 12 socket A HSF to fit this thing..I have an idea i think will work..

(Why)= why not! :rolleyes:

YES practice on the cheep stuff. ;)

you guys think its fun to move objects back and forth on sandpaper for hours?

I only spent about 2 hours on it. but i only took it to 1000 grit. I was looking for a flatter than stock contact.

To answer your question YES.

 

Trip to auto parts store for sandpaper $15.00

Trip to Wallyworld for painters blue tape $6.00

Stop at gas station for six-pack $5.00

The look on your friends faces when you told them what you did to your computer.(priceless) :lol:

meh..u guys are too hardcore. I felt like a complete tool after lapping for like 3 hours to get very minimal results.

This was a mod I did last week that dropped my temps 12c. This took about 3 hours and was a big gain for me.

I too wanted better results with the time spent lapping, :( but with the HSF i'm currently using I didn't get my

hopes too high. ;)

Umm...I really don't know how to respond to that mod. Did you have to use up all of the glue before you did it? :lol:
