    Not me. Doesn't make too much sense for us 6 core x58 guys. I'll hold out for SB-E 8 cores.

    Since we're posting lap pics...

    I bought a used i7 920 that had a dent in the middle of the IHS. Couldn't bare to use it that way...

    You can see in the second pic the small spot near the center of the IHS. Even after lapping it perfectly smooth to 2000 grit, I still did not get it all out.

    It begs the question do CPU manufacturers actually pay any attention to people who lap their CPU's do they realise that we do it for a reason and if that reason is good enough why don't they just make their IHS's better by you know making them smooth and flat

    Because we're such a small portion of the consumer base. Even I have only done this to one CPU, though I've done a ton of heatsinks. Besides, the way they make the IHS works perfectly fine for stock, so they can't justify it.

    Maybe adding it to a top-of-the-line chip, but not anything else. It's pointless for them. Too bad... :(

    Dammit, you old monkey, you are ruining the troll.

    No he didn't ask nicely. There was no please. Even my 8 year old niece knows to say please when she wants something.

    My old definition......

    Nicely = Even tone, no offence
    Politely = please, thank you
    unpleasant = red mist descending
    offensively = red mist engulfed, ban in the making :cool:
    :D
    Wile E says thanks.
