I just finished putting a V9 Cool Mod in my comp and WOW was that thing uneven! I figured it would even out some but it was very uneven. I just wanted to throw this out for anyone that uses or is thinking of using a V9 CoolMod. Lapping it is a must! It was very, very uneven. Other than that I love it in my comp.

I'm not a big ThemalTake fan, but not all the V9s will come out as uneven as yours.

I have a V9 too, and I load at about 42 ish.

I agree, the base is awful, i was saying just the other day in a lapping thread that I couldnt believe how unsmooth it was

Mine is unlapped and looks pretty good to me, 38C load with the fan at 3000rpm.
