    Fo real bro. The honey works as TIM also. You dont even have to latch the cooler down, the honey will hold it in place. Then if you really want to do it right you dip your mother board in honey also. The ants will clean it up eventually. :laugh:

    I have a tracfone, buddy... it has no such feature :laugh:

    Don't know what the temps were before... never built the rig yet. Waiting on the motherboard. However... my temps dropped like 1-3c when I lapped my Athlon II... doesn't even have a core temp sensor so it's reading the socket temp... not a very good indicator :/

    Well, the q9450 has 2 dies instead of just one, so having a fine-tuned IHS will impove your temps a bit. The difference is also greater as your cpu gets hotter. My processor only eats like 72w after overclocking (and a bit of undervolting), IIRC the q9450 is a 95w processor straight out of the box without any overclocking... you probably had it overclocked and overvolted, so the temps would only natrually be higher.

    ahh ok, I remember when I lapped my Phenom 9850 I dropped like 4-5ºc, wasn't the greatest job ever but it was ok.

    Do you still have that 4300? Or was it a 4400... :laugh:

    Well, it looks like I'll be upgrading my Athlon2200 system a bit further than I thought. There's a 120gb drive and a 250gb drive in my mom's computer, and I recently reformatted her pc to cure a number of very strange problems... anyways, she doesn't have enough data to fill even the 120gb drive, so I just took the 250gb. It's a Western Digital Caviar, and the HDD is all black so it migt be a Caviar Black, but I don't see Black after Caviar on the label... it's just Caviar. In any case, I'm sure it's faster than the old 40gb drive I was using...

    Hopefully that board comes in tomorrow... can't wait to get it running again.

    Getting rid of the 6000+ I can see, but you should have kept the 4300 as a souvenir :laugh:

    A kit? j/k...hehehe I use the local Auto-zone (auto parts store) kit..lol 2 multi-packs of 400-600-800-1000-1500-2000 grid sand paper(4.99ea). A roll of electrical tape to hold down the sandpaper and a round piece of glass from an old coffee table for a flat surface.

    You can go 2500 for looks but not really needed. Will this be your first lap job? :toast:

    Meh, I use 400, 800, 1500, and 2000. Going up to 2000 isn't really nescessary, after my sandpaper runs out I'll only go up to 1500.

    No board today either, fuuuuuuuu..

    yeah yeah i know :rolleyes: but the nearest auto shop is like 1.5 hours away, so the cost of transport and so on is the same, if not more
    i had to pay like 10$ incl shipping, so its not too bad, had to get some thermal paste anyways:D

    and yeah, i know the high number grid is more for the shiny effect :D, i just want mine to be straight,

    no i did a q9450 a while ago, but only to 1500grid, so no mirror finish
