    I dunno... In lapping the CPU, it seems like the potential for bad outweighs the potential for good. Just my humble opinion. :)

    The last time that I lapped a CPU was a K6-2 500 with a buckled heat spreadder but unless your's shows signs of this (I use a steel ruler to check) then I wouldn't bother doin' it as the potential to do major damage is there. ;)

    :cry: :tears: :cry:

    Well I figured it would be impractical I guess a better question would be if anyone would know what if any theoretical improvement could be gained by it.

    Sorry the whole newbie thing next to my name is getting me to act more newbie-ish than usual.

    And who said I'm eduma-thingy I just went to school, I never said I learned anything. :rolleyes:

    Now,now,there's no need to cry mikie..........i just meant it would be extremely time consuming/unprofitable as serrated edges are
    difficult if not impossible to machine lathe/lap & than Polish compared to a totaly flat surfaced high tech metal unit, and
    the P4 already cost too many body parts/first born as it is.....
    agreed:?: However, if both HS/CPU cores were manufactured
    by the same company & fully machine sufaced at same time on same milling unit...bingo perfect twin mirrored mating surface:2cents:
