Well a piece of glass and duct tape was much easier to deal with than trying to secure my heatsink and cpu so that i could run a belt sander across them. Read up on the lapping guildes. I have yet to see anyone successfully actually lap a hsf/cpu by moving the paper rather than the item.
Anyway, on to ste. The motherboard took a dump saturday, cant overclock when you cant turn the thing on
RMA in process. Actually less of an RMA and more of just upgrading to the 780i. I bought a cheap 650i abit board to tide me over until i get the 780. So its going to be a few weeks before i get to really test the limits of the GTS setup.
