Void your CPUs warranty for fun and profit

Subject: Cases and Cooling | September 29, 2009 - 04:59 PM |

Back in the days of the K6 some overclocking enthusiasts would lap the integrated heatspreader that covered the physical chip.  Now we can revisit those bygone days thanks to the new chips incorporating a heatspreader once again.  In case you weren't around for those days of yore, Bjorn3D has published a guide on the proper method to lap your CPU.  Check out the process to give you a few more degrees of headroom for overclocking.

"Lapping an IHS on a CPU is not as hard as most think. It does not require hours of work, and there is none of this, 'You have to do this way, and only this way for perfect results.' Contrary to popular belief lapping the IHS can be done in a matter of minutes and still get a seriously high polish out of it."

Here are some more Cases & Cooling reviews from around the web:
