Talking AMD 3800+ Lapped

Well, I just lapped my 3800+ and wanted to show how drastic the results are.

Im currently running it at a meager 2.4ghz OC form the 2.0Ghz stock.

The temperatures were recorded uing Coretemp and speedfan to ensure accuracy and load temps were taken after 3 minutes of Ortho Dual Core Stress. I did a pre-test and the temps didnt rise any higher after 5 minutes than they did in 3.

Room temp is around 26C.

Ill do an update after 300 hours run time to show temps after Paste has worked in.

The next CPU I will be lapping is an E6700 running at stock 2.66Ghz.

Not a bad result: decrease of 7-10 °C. Kinda mirrors my results lapping my q6600.
