    This is my beautifull, sexy E4500 ("Goldie"). I'm selling her because I've changed platform. She had the most sexy lap job in the world.

    My E4500, it was made with love:
    - sandpaper from 250 to 2500 (5 hours), softly and gently
    - jewelery lapping paste (5 hours), it become warm and wet when you are lapping
    - soft, warm, cotton sock's (2 hours of polish), to finish the job :)

    It was long evening to take out all beauty from E4500 and to make my "Goldie" shine.

    TRUE 120 took almost 2 days to make it beautifull. If you want more photos od lapped stuff, I can upload them.

    The detail on the reflection of the lapped sink and cpu has better detail than the actual item itself. I even saw a man on the window from the building on the money.

    I wonder if the surface was that flat if TIM was even needed.

    Could you please come to my house and do that to my CPU and cooler?:laugh:

    When you have that kind of flat surfaces (razor edge flat), and when you put them together, there is real problem to separate them. The CPU stick to cooler real hard. It's like mechanical adhesion.
    I've made some experiments with thermal greeses. The difference between OCZ Freeze and no thermal paste is about 2-3 degrees. The tricky thing is when I used Coolermaster Silicon thermal paste, the temperature was higher than without paste by about 3-4 degrees.

    ^^^ Yeah, I can only imagine how hard it would be to take the cooler off. Rip the damn motherboard in half. Good thing i7's have the clip that holds the CPU in place, I shouldn't have that issue if I ever lap my CPU and cooler.. I don't plan to though. I may lap my heatsink, but not my CPU, i want my warranty! :D

    i never will put the stock heatsink on a lapped CPU it pulls the damn CPU out of the socket and you have to twist and try to get the CPU off. Now on the HDT (also been lapped) i don't have that problem :wtf:
