for those that have one... have you lapped it and if so, how much lower were your temps?

i'm thinking about lapping mine.

thanks...

With the Glaciator, my CPU is only a couple degrees C above the MB temperature at idle so I don't think lapping would make that much of a difference. Maybe at full load it would make a difference, where the difference is 10C or so.

these are very well made sinks I would expect them to have a pretty flat base to start with. Of course lapping with some higher grade may smoothen this out a little

Haven't lapped mine yet ...

... what kind of results are the rest of you having with this heatsink? I have read some of the info on how the onboard thermistor will give misleading results with the millenium, my reported temps. aren't any better than with my Alpha 6035. I haven't been able to increase the MHz on my AXIA with this sink either. ...Jury is still out on this one as far as I'm concerned.

they come flat as all heatsinks do, but it's no where near a mirror finish or anything close to it. at least that's how mine was...

i'm only using the onboard thermistor and my temps are a few degrees C lower than my swiftech mc-370. i can run my chip at a higher speed w/o having to up the voltage to the max on my kk266r as i had to do with the swiftech... this is the best air cooling i've used... but i'm gonna go with water in a few days when i have all my parts...
