Default Re: Need help looking for an aftermarket CPU cooler

You will lap it, right? Because the TRUE is only a cut above the rest of the high end coolers when it's lapped.

Lapped, properly mounted with sufficient pressure, and with a decent 38mm fan, the TRUE can't be beaten.

Yeah I'm gonna lap it... I'm gonna assemble my computer today @ stock settings; next month when I have more money I'll buy my 2nd drive for RAID 0, my 2nd GPU for crossfire (or sell my 4890 and grab a 5800 series), and sandpaper + TRUE black & lap it up, then start overclocking.

I should lap my CPU too, right?

Yes, I felt the need to at least.
