Hey TPU Members! I promised everybody on our WCG Crunching team I would post some picks of the lap job for my Q9550. I'm not going to go into great detail, but if anyone is interested in how to lap there process just reply to the thread. Tools Flat surface - I used a large piece of glass from a coffee table. Surface cleaner - I used 91% Alcohol Air - I used a portable air Compressor (Canned air just as good) Sandpaper - I used 3M Wet or Dry (from Advance automotive) Grit sizes (P400, P600, P800, P1000, P1500, P2000) Tape - I used electrical tape to hold down the sandpaper. Temps before lap job @ Full Load All the tools together Just an extra pic of setting up the tools Stock Q9550 Processor After 3 rounds of P400 (Remember to clean the processor after each round. Hit it with air then cleaner to not scratch surface.) 3 rounds of P600 you can start to see where the dips where at. Money shot of P600.. hehehe I went 4 rounds of P800 (Just enough to see complete copper) It's not set in stone for how many rounds for each grit... You can start to tell when it's time to move on.. It will start feeling like your not doing anything. the processor just glides across the sandpaper. 3 rounds of P1000 4 rounds of P1500. Some people start to wet the sandpaper. I don't.. you don't have to make it look like glass. It just needs to be flat. If you do.. Use Alcohol not water.. It dries faster . Money shot of P1500 And finally 4 rounds of P2000 Another pic of P2000 Temps after Lap Job @ Full Load Well, I hope everyone enjoyed the pics. Remember, This is not a "how to".. I'm just showing how I lap processors. If anyone wants to lap there processor, and needs more detail. I will be glad to help as much as I can. Everyone please help our crunching, and folding teams by joining, and contributing! Thanks!
