    Didn't their last board break because of something like that?

    Agreed. Though I think that they are taken to be pretty rubbish. It would be nice to see a review of the new one that some with the newer processors.

    On a different note, what does lapped mean? You say that it had poor contact in the middle, so does that mean you bent the processor (!) or shaved a bit off the top?

    lapping something means sanding it down with a bit of wet n dry fine grit to a flat and polished finish. We took off the poor finish to make a better one.

    Ach, some processors aren't completely flat when they're made, same is true for heatsinks... Oh, and as Bindi says, some are scratched....

    So lapping levels the whole lot out
