Safely lapping an H100


Recommended Posts

based on the TIM Corsair uses, any irregularities will be filled in just fine.

i am strongly in favor of lapping a CPU though, i cut down several degrees by lapping the CPU as seen below.


not always true. the stock heat sinks are round and sit on the cores without touching the corners. the full contact coolers can sit on the corners of the CPU and have uneven pressure on the cores. new paste will not solve this. i lap my CPUs to prevent this for better temps. here is a pic of one of my CPUs "mid lap" and you can clearly see the corners of the chip were significantly higher preventing even cooling.
