Has anyone have some personal experience with chipset lapping.
I've noticed that nForce chips aren't quite flat and that AS3's quality isn't that good when used to fill up larger gaps.
However I'm a bit reluctant to start sanding down my chips, for understandable reasons I hope
Both the NB and SB could use a job, the NB is quite big, but has more space around it, SB is pretty small and has much less room around it. I generally don't mind mixing electronics and water, but wet-sanding this is pushing even my limits.
So is it worth it? Since this would be the first thing to, quite literaly, destroy my warranty. Everything else is somewhat removable.
Anyone got any pointers from first hand exp? I read some articles about it, but I'm still a bit conservative here.
I'd finally like to get my PC working again by monday evening, my coolers are all available (titan CUV2AB on the NB and a zalman NB47J on the SB) but htis is the last thing I'm actually thinking about.

I wouldn't do it...
if you actually have active cooling or decent cooling for northbridge and southbridge with as3, the difference in OC should be minimal or non-existant...
