Tox's first Lapping session.

Morning!

Last night I saw the temps on my poor Intel Celeron clocked to 3.0Ghz.

They where around 60oC LOAD and used to be 57oC, I know it isn't much of an increase.. But I needed something to do.

So naturaly I got the chip out and grabbed some sand paper.

Unforunatly I only had Grit: 100, 220, 400, 1000. So I will have to finish lapping another time.

But so far so good if you ask me!

100 Grit:



220 Grit:



400 Grit:



1000 Grit:



I wasn't happy with it, I wanted more copper showing.. so back to the 100 Grit:



1000 Grit again:



So that is my attempt so far. I am very impressed because I have cut 10oC from my LOAD temp. Plus it isn't even finished.

Need to go buy some higher grit papers.

Comments are welcome! But I believe it did the chip a world of good!

I am looking forward to getting a nice mirror finish on this baby.

Thanks for looking!

Nice Tox

Personally I'd leave it at that. As long as it's flat and knocks some °C off, you don't need any more

It is pretty good fun, I must admit.

I recommend it. But be careful, the main reason I did it on my Celeron is because you can buy them for 20quid now.

And it was my first go at doing it so I was testing myself I guess!

Thanks Kemp!

I am really impressed in how much it knocked off!

Tox, just leave it. Now most people recommend 1000 grit max because the mirror finish sometimes is worse for temps.

Edit: if not worse, no major benefit if any at all.

almost there my friend

First hi everybody

Get the corners a bit more my friend you dont need to take any more of and just make sure its even just shine her up now with the super thin stuff I would also do the same on the cooler if its not mirrior like (AND FLAT). Get some artic chemical cleaner and some silver 5 and all will be super cool but good start tho.

Thanks for the heads up Vader!

And Thanks for the extra advice koganinja! What you said has been taken on board and maybe a little later I will try and get the corners!

Welcome to the forum!

Few more years and you'll be able to have your first lapdance session.

Good work there mate, if you dont mind putting some extra elbow work in, pop to the garage and look for some metal polish or T-cut (make sure if its polish that it doesnt leave any finish / lacquer) and some cloth. Lay the cloth on a tile or something, pour some T-cut on and lap the shi* out of it. I've taken a block from green crusty oxidation to _perfect_ mirror with that method without any paper higher than 800 grit

Thanks for the advice llwyd!

I lapped it some more today.. just to get the edges. See what you think.



Did a little on the Heatsink to get that flat face.. but doesn't seem to be that flat to me.



Thanks for your support!
