Yes, so one would also want to lap the CPU when using a TRUE on an Intel chip. Lots of work for a couple three degrees.
Exactly!!!!! Maybe remove the heatsink?I think we're missing the bigger picture here. You should not be hitting 100°C if you are running stock. Are you sure the cooler is mounted correctly, proper TIM, removed the plastic from the cooler? I know these are noob questions but there's something going on that hasn't been addressed yet.
But you don’t need to lap it? I used it on 775 and 1366 with no problem. I would be using it now but have moved on.. since I lost some of my mounting hardware
If you want to use it on a new AMD you’ll probably want to lap it, since it seems coolers that were good for intel are not so good for Ryzen without some lapping. Unless you have access to a milling machine then you could just buzz .020-.030 thou off or so.
