    lap heatsink now or later?

    I just got an AX-7 HS and i definatly need to lap it. I am installing a new mobo, hsf, etc, for a reason i can not say, i cant install it yet, so my question is can i lap the hs now, or should i wait until i can install it? Will there be any negative effects of leaving this smooth heatsink out? Should i avoid things (even like the plastic bag it came in) from touching the lapped surface? This may seem like a am sweating over something small, but i am curious. Thanks.

    I'd wait, but that's just me.

    I'd wait too. No harm in waiting.
