Make sure you visit your local Home Depot!
Tech Level - Enthusiast - First time lapping Pros - Shipping was quick; ordered with the 6-9 day and got it in 3 ( I live on the East Coast and I think FrozenCPU is in California) Contains high grits that most stores don''t carry. If done by a beginner you can expect at least a 2C drop in temp if not more. Cons - Expensive; you can go to Home Depot and buy the same grits (3 sheets of 12x8) for less than $4, 5 grits for $20; Only reason why I purchased this kit was because my Home Depot did not carry such high grits. Papers are too small for a complete cycle of strokes. I ended up using the papers to the last corner and still needed more. DID NOT come with a set of instructions even though it was advertised. I felt that if there was instructions included, I would have a better understanding of what I needed to do in order to grind off all of the nickel. The grain didn''t last long at all, after 30 passes, you can see and feel the grain getting smooth; not good for lapping. Applying water for wet sanding made it smooth even quicker. Other Thoughts - It came with a block of plastic; didn''t know what it was for, most likely to keep the papers from bending during shipping. I couldn''t get a mirror finish; the papers were too small for me to grind the nickel off completely from the middle so I had to go from 400 to 1200 then all the way back to 400 and repeat back up; ran out of paper then said, "screw it" and just sanded with 2000 and 2500 then called it a day. Great if you don''t have the higher grits, but is a bit small. Make sure you visit your home depot first and buy a few sheets of the available grits and if you''re missing the higher ones, buy this kit. Overall Satisfaction: Pleased Would purchase again (with prior visits to my Home Depot) Would recommend to a friend
