I've lapped in the past but I haven't done so in my last two CPU's. The last one I lapped was my Pentium D 905 and Scythe Ninja cooler. I still use the cooler but the CPU has been retired.

You know, I must be missing something here. Their actual point updates are on a magnitude of 3x's ours. That seems like a credible threat still. On the other hand, the gap is now 5.7 months.
