Why? Thermal paste's thermal properties are much worse than aluminum, copper, etc.. It's much better than air, so that's why it's used, to fill the gap between the heatsink and the CPU.

So what exactly is wrong with lapping to you guys..? Is it the fact that you've never done it before?

A thick layer of thermal paste is bad, too.

And you don't have to lap your CPU, your heatsink alone is fine. Obviously you get better results with your CPU lapped correctly, but whatever.

Well lapping is more for the enthusiasts, who just want to get the best they can get...If you know what you're doing, then it is worth it. If you're worried about damaging it, that's why you think it's not worth doing.

I want to try this lapping thing, because even though I'm new to it, and possibly might damage it, I learn something from it. I'm going to lap my Zalman, and see the results. If it's good, I'm going to try lapping my future TR Ultra-120 Extreme.

i considered machining off a very fine layer myself and then lapping it.

But its too much time. I work all day then go to the gym, then make dinner, then its bed time.

Plus if I put that much time into a heat sink my girlfriend would be ****ed off probably haha.
