how to lap a heatsink - how to lap a heatsink
Sun, November 03 2002 | 3:14PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Most overclockers strive to push their equipment just a little bit faster; a 400 MHz overclock just isn't good enough, we want 401 MHz, and then 402 MHz... As we push our equipment faster and faster it produces more heat, this heat of course can take it’s toll on the electronics within the computer. ..To battle heat, we'll buy the best aluminum case, the best heat sink with a 185 cfm fan, a dozen case fans, and even go as far as to use a pelter or water cooling setup. Even with the best, there is still more that can be done to help cool your CPU, GPU, system chip, and other components. It's a process known as "lapping".
