I went 600-1000-2000, and got a very good polish on mine. It wasn't mirror finish, but close. Used just a little water and soap on the 600 grit, and then did the 1000 and 2000 grit dry.

Mine aren't stuck on 40C, they usually stay there though during normal use. The start at about 36-38C and warm up when the machine is on for a while.

I might have to give my CPU a shot also
Interesante... I'm scared to lap the cpu... seems so easy to get the other side messed up.
