See this thread.
Q6600 Lapping and New Mobo thread.
Heh, as much as I'd consider myself an enthusiast, I am rather uncomfortable with the idea of sanding down a $250 processor.

I'll see how temps and overclock are first.

Plus, it'll be hard to resell it once I want to get a Q9450 later on.

Oh common, I have yet to see anyone destroy their processor by lapping it..

Harder to sell, maybe, but not impossible.

I'll look into it once the parts come in. Who else has lapped their CPU here?

Could even be a selling point ^^

Not sure if I can bring myself to do it >< Depends how bad the fit is on the cpu block.

Anyhow sick system merk XD I've got that keyboard right now. Cept I got the red one. Its VERY nice. Built like a brick too. Its short a few media keys which would be handy. I miss the next song button. But no biggie.

edit heres a VERY good pictorial lapping guide IMO.

Pictorial HSF+IHS lapping guide! (check this out if you're thinking about lapping) - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

worth a read

Make sure you lap both sides for extra performance.

Lapping actually brought down the temps of 2 cores by about 10C. And now all 4 cores stay within 1-2C of each other, whereas before there would be as much as 14C difference between cores at the same usage level.
