Hey guys, I haven't checked my lapped heatsink for flatness yet, but my CPU is perfectly flat except for on one edge and part of another edge. Eyeing it with a razor blade, its probably at the most a .1mm difference. So is that close enough or do I need to spend some more time with the sand paper?

.1mm that is the best you really gonna get sounds like you worked hard on that.

Took about an hour and a half to do it.

O believe me I know it takes awhile I dod my Q9550 a few months back and I spent atleast an hour doing it to get it just right and the heatsink even took longer because I didn't want to sand too much off and go threw the heat pipes.

I have to redo my heatsink. The center is higher in the direction where I went perpendicular to the heat pipes, showing that I pushed/pulled it. But its not very much, maybe .5 mm
