Techtu if you keep showing that thing off your gunna make me wanna lap mine.
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 .... DO IT
D: I know if I do I'm gunna kill my proc.
but i got my 2nd 2600K today
O_O What did you do to your mouse?
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.
More in Your PC ATM.
I'm lovin the WC run there DD nice n clean lookin
yup last time I did a lap job I started with 900 dry then went 1500 wet and 2500 wet to finish all in a figure 8 pattern came out very nice I wish now I'd taken some pics to show it off it was almost mirror finish
Where would I even get one?/ what are the benefits of lapping your cpu?
Oh, I thought he took some pliers or something to his mouse lol.
srsly i don't get why everyone even from a Core i7-8xx upgrades to Sandy Bridge it's not like it's that better
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
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
I'd trade my 1366 for SB in a heartbeat
sexy enough ?
With a stock cooler? Tsk tsk tsk...
quiet now lol
now shops are open on saturdays and sundays in my area, so couldnt get another cooler
:/ 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 ^^;
Okay, I'm about 80% sure you are in the mafia. How else would you afford that?
Don has connections...
Would be more sexy without the granny-panty cooler.
A full 7 slots, eh? I'm more interested in the BIOS.
Maybe I can't count, but that looks like 8 to me.
