    They actually recommend not going for a mirror finish. As the thermal grease actually needs microgrooves to "grip" in to form a seal.

    I personally don't go over 1200.
    If I was in your position, I would try 600, then maybe 900, or straight to 1200. It will take a while. And also make sure to use wet/dry sand paper, and USE water. You don't dry sand metal.

    On the northbridge deal, if aint broke don't fix it ~ thats the way I see it. I have NEVER had a problem with cooling and the northbridge. JMHO...

    Good luck,
    Chez

    JESUS!!! 6000/9000 ?!?!! or even 12,000?!! holy crap, on my cesna and gliders i use PLEDGE to clean my windows.. shiittt i once used pledge on a learjet, worked good, but i think 800 or 1200 grit would work fine for his hsf, would take thoes nasty groves out that ya put in with that 'fine' 220..lol 220? did u look at the hsf b4 u did this man? i mean 220 isnt 'fine' atall. an idea my buddy did, is we used my oxy-welder and put his copper intel hsf(3.2model hsf) and we melted the surface of the hsf and let it dry, erm...'cool'down, it was relly flat, and it lost 3F in idle and 5F load temps.

    thats right, thermal grease/paste AC# or w/e does take time to ...cure...my silver grease said it takes upwards of 2 weeks to 'fully' fix...
