    I guess, but considering min wage here is $15 our currency (or about $2.10 USD) per hour, you can understand how expensive these things are to us

    I have used "Klingspor auto-paper" weatherproof sand paper with water on one of my BitsPower lids. I have started with 800 grit and worked my way up to 2000 grit. It has taken me 2 hours :mad: and I get this crap finish! why?
    Can someone please give me some tips. I have placed the sandpaper on a flat ceramic tile, so why is there scuff marks?
    Sorry for the photo quality, my camera lens has a crack on it :oops:

    I don't know how you managed this finish, but bling bling glass finish doesn't make a big difference. The point is making the IHS flat/even:)

    Thank you Papusan. I thought it had to be a mirror finish. Much appreciated. I think it's the quality of the sand paper. I'm going to pick up some other brand today. I'm going to give it one more try...

    Bought different sandpaper. It has worked great. I'm going to spend more time on it tomorrow hopefully.

    A lot better:) +rep. But don't shave off all the copper and miss the advantage of thicker IHS:D

    Yes, mounting pressure is a problem with laptop heatsinks, and the less copper there is, the less mounting pressure you have. Even if it's micrometers. Focus on making it flat with as little removed as possible, so you gain more in temp reduction from flat to flat surface, than you lose in reduction of PSI pressure.

    I have finished lapping the BitsPower IHS and I have put it on my 7700k CPU with Grizzly Conductonaut liquid metal and I have removed the C-clips from the CPU heatsink aswell. I have also added GC liquid metal on my 2x GTX 1080 GPU's. I have created a foam barrier with kapton tape for the CPU and GPU's. I am still waiting for my AlphaCool 17w/mk thermal pads to come though. But I thought I will try liquid metal on the CPU & GPu's for a week until I get them, as I want to see the mess it will do after a week. I am going to do some benchmarks when the 17w/mk thermal pads come. These are my 5 minute boot-up hitting 85w on CPU package, and CPU prep work, Nothing special...
