    I've always lapped my own heatsinks with 2000 grit sandpaper, sanding till I got a mirror finish. Nice to see a lapping kit out there with everything you need to get a great lap job done.

    Lapping makes for a better chance of getting a great and even contact with your CPU die or heat spreader, I personally have always noticed temperatures drop by several degrees just by lapping a heatsink, even brand new ones.

    I bought a few lapping kits from this guy. Top notch service, low prices, and the highest quality product.
