When I lapped my cpu I didn't use tape on it, and just went straight to the sandpaper. I held it around the corners, and it seemed to work pretty well.

I use wet sandpaper when I lap. It just means less little metal particles floating around, I find it easier to get a smooth polish on the cpu too.

Just curious, what ever happened to the days of people just removing the IHS and going direct core?
