    Tell me, does the added voltage increase sexual stamina and/or size? And if so, will I need added cooling or will an open fly do? :D

    /derailment

    I may have to lap my cpu after seeing your results jizwizard. Did you use just that one type of sandpaper?

    I never mentioned my chip

    All of the above plus a bonus 'tingling' sensation for all involved. An open fly approach is my preferred cooling solution and it makes for an excellent ice-breaker

    sorry pete but it will not kill it. if it does i will kindly donate the rest of my system to you. people used to say the same thing when i was putting 1.65v through my phenom. anyhow if it blows it will be my own fault and it will be replaced.

    how did you find the temps when putting that voltage through your nuts.

    Don't bother unless you think it's really uneven it's a lot of work really

    no you normally would use a variety of different grits

    started of with 400 grit then 800, 1000, 1500 like i said in the first post if i had 2000 and 2500 grit i would have finished it off with that.

    nice little tutorial here http://www.l3p.nl/other-builds-mods/cpu-lapping/how-to-lap-an-i7-2600k/

    Yeah what were your temps like? I'm hoping for 36 ish, otherwise I might need to mod a spare space to move the nuts to a cooler location.

    Cheers for that +rep And I've never noticed it being really uneven, still might give it a go when I have a spare hour or 2 though :)

    Ah cheers for the link :thumb: +rep to you as well

    I get apx. 38-39 at idle, so just over ambient body temperature tbh. At full load though the temperatures do skyrocket, and it is quite an experience. I'm contemplating lapping them.

    That's it I've decided, some overclocking is needed when I get home. Think I'll start off with a benchmark run using 2v, and then drop it down to 1.5 for everyday use.

    Cheers for the advice Sketchee :thumb::hehe: have some rep

    And hmmmmm, this idea seems quite intriguing :naughty: lol

    If that's an offer I'll take you up on it, that's you in your avatar right? ;)

    Hmm 2v is ambitious. Way to raise the bar there - kudos. But just remember I'm not liable when things go wrong

    Do you start with LN2 and slowly go down to air cooling ?

    I've always meant to ask, who is that in your avatar jizwizard. And how did you ever get her to agree for that picture to be on here? lol

    Already had two kids, the sky's the limit now :rock: lol

    Hadn't thought of LN2, but an interesting idea :lol: But yeah, I'll move down to air cooling for normal usage. Strapping an LN2 pot to my cock may draw unnecessary questions.

    Would me and Sketchee get a discount on the lapping service for being fellow bit techers? lol

    I look forward to your reply :hehe:

    Edit: Some early overclocking results. Went for 1.4v (haven't got the LN2 yet). Completely passive cooling, no air intake. A respectable 42 degrees on idle, haven't tested full load yet.




    I fear I may have helped completely derail this thread lol

    excuse my stupidity but i take it that you have attacked the top of your CPU with sand paper, and when you apply your thermal compound/paste and attach tou your COU cooler it makes it better for the temps ?

    Yeah, he's smoothed the surface of the heatspreader on the cpu basically. Making thermal transfer more efficient :)
