I ruined another GPU....

Vitenskap og teknologi

I was told by the XOC community that I wont get any farther in my OC adventures unless I lap my GPU die AND my LN2 pot... since I already lapped the pot... I guess its time we work on the die...

    Use fine valve grinding compound in a figure 8 on cold plates or anything you want flat. Then use fine 1500+ polishing paper to get the desired surface finish. I noticed a more consistent hight center to edge using a dial indicator.

    Try silver plating one or both of the contact surfaces. Silver is more thermally conductive than copper. You can check true flatness with a small piece of glass. Glass is as near flat as you will get due to the manufacturing process. Low viscosity/low surface tension fluids like acetone or methyl alcohol sandwiched between two surfaces will maintain capillary contact between the surfaces where they are closest, and with glass, you can easily see it. This includes checking two pieces of glass for flaws. Moving and rotating the pieces reveals flaws because the liquid "sticks" with the piece containing the flaw.

    You could use a machinist indicator to find the low and high spots to a thousandth of an inch and use polishing compound instead of sandpaper for a more accurate lapping. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    11:10 if you are concerned about getting some of the mounting screws too tight(compared to the others) a torque wrench would assist in ensuring the screws are equally tight. If you are torquing them in unison(the way lug nuts are tightened on a wheel) , it might be causing the card or even the die to flex ever so slightly.

    The Silicon-Ingot are cut/sawn into raw Wafers but later grinded down to the wanted thickness. At least that's what we're doing at work, don't know how TSMC etc. are doing it, but doubt they take the raw cut/sawn wafers.

    I am fairly sure the letters are engraved into the die, they aren't raised. and they probably have next to negligible effect on temperatures. The biggest issue is the die probably has almost no buffer before you reach circuitry so if you go any deeper than the letters you are probably hitting the circuitry in the die.

    2000 grit is too abrasive. The minimum grit you would need to use is 8000 grit or finer. Anything else would just be too abrasive. I like to use abralon pads which are used for polishing fighter jet canopies. It takes way longer to lap but it's much less aggressive which gives you more control.

    Suggestions: Besides learning about "flatness" and the "3-plate" method, as you're lapping the die surface with your custom sanding block, besides changing the direction and method of lapping, also change the orientation of the sanding block, by 180deg, then 90deg, then 180deg, then 90deg, this will "zero" out any of the remaining variations in the sanding media itself.

    BTW, jay. All the effort you put into making the plate flat was lost using the sand paper (it's much more inconsistent than the metal at that point). Look into the techniques for lapping surface plates for inspiration. Use diamond paste or another paste based abrasive if that's too fine. And if you want truly flat, glass won't cut it. Leverage geometry for perfection. ericweinhoffer.com/blog/2017/7/30/the-whitworth-three-plates-method

    get a lapping plate, or a Granite surface plate. Much better for lapping. Or at the very least get 12in x 12in Granite tile from the hardware store for lapping. Much thicker and less likely to flex.

    Unironically you may benefit with building a faraday cage.

    "... if you are talking about making a flat from scratch, without any master flat or expensive test equipment, then the answer is the three plate method. This is used in the machine shop environment with spotting and scraping and in the optical world with abrasive grinding (lapping). The optical world clearly produces the better or flatter surfaces as they are not only flat to the sub tenths tolerances of the best machinist's flats, but are highly polished and flat to within millionths of an inch."
