    I nearly always lap new coolers as its surprising the lack of quality control some company's have....more to ascertain that the surface is flat than the mirror finish some people go to:confused: .

    A recent example was a Thermaltake copper cooler for my Gf4ti4200 card the finish was acceptable but when i checked for surface flatness i was really disappointed the coolers surface was onto the lapping plates it went and 45mins later the job was done, now i never checked for temps before and after but having a gap between the cooler and GPU cannot be good for heat dissipation.

    2 degrees can be the diffrence between the ultimate overclock and a fried/froze CPU ;) ya sound like you would be happy with a pre built dell machine, me i got to do everything myself, strip and rebuild all parts until im 100% happy with the job :):):)
