    Got an older HK 4870x2 WB, the former owner was a little uncareful and left thiick fat fingerprints all over the copper plate.... i cleaned it with ketchup, vinegar extract and pure citric acid, and it looks pretty okay now again.

    oh, polish is abrasive, that can cost flatness of the cooler.
    i also had some here, but rather have a little less bling, then that i get worser temps,eh?;)

    it's not like you'd polish 2mm of the thickness

    no, that would probably make the cooler unusable :laugh:
    but i guess when a kind of crevice forms, that can be even 1/4th of a mm,maybe smaller.. temps will worsen... maybe only one degree, but meh... that mustnt be... as said, on this stage of the project i wont risk anything ;) i want that car rad 12fan madness cooled dual gpu card! :D

    an 1/4mm might be a good thing lookin at those machine marks, flat surface = good temps

    dont ask me why, but my heatkiller 3.0 looks similar regarding the machining of its underside, and we all know how good these things cool. ;)
    I trust HK, i never heard anyone had problems with their quality.
    with luck, i maybe even can install it soon, to see how the temps are, despite the fact that the surface may be flat, but not without grooves :)

    Metal polish leaves a residue. You don't want to use it on your heatsinks.

    Is there some weird chemical reaction type reason you couldn't have just used 90% iso and a microfiber?

    I like the black and white. Looks mysterious.

    It was a dark and stormy motherboard...
