Oh yes I think you guys know what this little processor has in store for it 220 grit done, copper is all exposed. Here is what it looked like to start I had already done some work on it a long time ago (basically just brasso to make it shinier. starting out copper beginning to peak out copper clearly exposed just a little more to go finished with 220 done with the 220 grit the copper is fully exposed, now I just need to make it shiny on to 400 grit, I was going back and forth about whether or not to use 320 or just go up to 400. I decided on 400 and am glad. Only took about 5 minutes to finish it up. this is from about 30 seconds of sanding already very little cross hatching left. and done here you can see a slight bit of reflection starting so that wraps it up for 400 grit now on to 600 600 went by really fast too, I was really surprised by it! still some crossing going on and another almost done all done, hard to tell the difference between 400 and 600 from pics but there I can see a big difference not a big improvement with the reflections and on to 1500 grit hopefully it doesn't take too long... wasn't too bad. There was a nasty scratch in the middle of the chip that took a while to get out but the whole thing still only took about 5 mintues. here you can see the scratch that I was talking about. all done reflections are becoming quite clear here you can see the reflections as well brasso time! Ok so the brasso is taking a long time but it is steadily getting better jackie chan! worked with the brasso for a while and it is slow going so I brought out the big guns so I've been working with this off and on for a couple hours now (probably only a half hour of solid polishing) it is really slow going but I'm making progress so here is what it's looking like now mostly taking pics of things reflecting in it Durp I found out why that was taking so long I forgot to use rubbing compound! I may yet finish this tonight! Well here are the results of using the rubbing compound there it lies getting started and wrapping up not too bad I'm going to spend more time on my core 2 quad because I actually use it. This was something of a test you could say? I like how it turned out but I think I could do better, and I plan to on the q6600!
