just received it. Has a lot of machine marks/grooves and some weird grease mark? I haven't wiped it yet w/ rubbing alcohol but wanted to know if this base seemed good enough? I plan on OC'ng to the max ability of my 6850.

thx

Looks the same as mine did when I got it. Seems to work perfectly fine to me.

The reflections make it seem like it's not flat. You should probably lap it for best results.

you could but there's no guarantee you'll get one that is.

it seems like most people aren't get perfectly flat ultras.

If it seems flat to you, then just install it and see how it works for you.

I have heard about a lot of qc issues from those Ultra 120 Extremes lately. May as well lap it, can't hurt and it's basically free. If anything, it will help, even if it was pretty flat.
