    Because it was the first time I've ever lapped anything I went straight to the 2500grit... kind of have that gut feeling I should of gone for 1500 or something as it would of made the job a little quicker.

    I might just spam your inbox with even more of them :p .... DO IT :D

    Just buy an ESD strap if your cautious... that's the smart thing to do anyway's :)

    .. and his mouse is just fine

    Logitech MX-518 or some other one but with the same idea.

    HUGE difference. Just take a look at one of my latest reviews. Memory performance allows my SB @ stock feel faster than 870 @ 4.2GHz...specifically in games. My 870 and Maximus III Gene are sitting here collecting dust because of this. Also keep in mind that I only bought into SB for reviews, but boy, am i ever glad that I did! In fact I ended up buying a second for my gaming rig shortly after!;)

    This is STOCK:

    I went with a forward and back motion whilst rotating the chip every 15 to 20 minutes, and turned out pretty amazing imo, I'm tempted to do my brother's just for the fun of it :p

    Ebay would be a good place to get one from, they don't cost much on there.

    I've seen no difference in idle temps but I do use C&Q with manual settings which keep idle temps between 28 - 30c as for the maximum temp ive only hit 41c even on the hot day we had here yesterday, which it would usually do that on a somewhat cooler day, so my experience is yes it does make a slight difference, worth doing? well that's just a matter of opinion/personal choice.

    for gaming and usual stuff? no its not faster imo

    but its more fun to play with since it can easily hit 4.8 on a medium aircooler, i mean, find me another cpu that can do that

    and its on par with the 6cores from intel when it comes to crunching :D

    :/ Big Bang Marshal but i am more into Asus' Maximus boards ^^; and if i need a highend motherboard for multi-graphics i would properly buy a Maximus Extreme-Z with Nvidia NF200 chip and not the Lucid 22102 chip, plus the NF200 chip is better when it comes to performance and not limited about drivers like the Lucid have had problems with ^^;

    Would be more sexy without the granny-panty cooler.;)

    In corrections?:eek:
