    In regards to your CPU, perhaps you could get some ideas from this video -

    But instead of lapping the CPU, you'll be lapping the heat sink.

    @GENOCID - this kind of proactive manipulation of the heatsink/heatplate is what I was talking about, fiddling / wiggling to get better contact patch across CPU when loose, and pressing down on the cooling plate / assembly before screwing it down. Give an assist to the screws pulling it down.

    Good work Al :)

    Thank you all for your replys, I'm enlightened now, I only have one problem, where do I buy those squares? Or something similar? The sand paper is fine to get, but the block I can't find it; as I told you, block here means brick and I'm googling to try to find one but no luck, gonna try harder and as soon I have something I'll feedback right away.

    Thank you very much for your help once again

    Update: i found this https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/COPPER-Sheet-Plate-8-Different-Thicknesses-23-Popular-Sizes-/302204943332 I don't know if this are the blocks.
    What thickness should they have?

    You can use what you have. Small and flat enough and fits in you hand. Or search after similar like this www.performance-pcs.com-premium-heatsink-lapping-kit
