All good questions. I am confident the Arctic Silver was real, particularly the last batch because it came directly from AS. The Swiftech mounts directly to the board using screws and springs and I am reasonably confident it is mounted correctly. In fact, I actually tried two since I had an extra for another computer. AS far as lapping goes, I did lap both but they were very flat and did not need much, if any. Finally, I did follow the instructions to the letter, both for the HS and the CPU. The only difference is that I did try various thicknesses, ranging from almost transparent to probably 0.004 thick. The only thing left is the processor itself and I was not confident I could successfully lap it and make it beter instead of worse.
