Default Making the Tuniq fit....

I've heard on the TT120's the plate that rests against the cpu is sometimes (or all the times) concaved in...away from the cpu so that it doesnt have 100% contact with the cpu. I've heard of people sanding this to make it even, but are there any tutorials for this or guides? does this problem even occur on ALL tt120's or just some?

I have a tuniq as well that I have yet to install, really I wouldn't do anything unless its not working correctly. Despite how "easy" everyone makes everything sound, if you mess up in lapping/sanding, you can really mess things up...question is, are your temps alright?

No way! I just ordered the exact same build from Newegg! They should be here around the 15th, also! The only difference is that I went for the XFX 8800GTS (free Lost Planet), and I got the Q6600. It'll be a big step up from what's in my sig.
