Gpu ram thermal pads/thermal paste.

Postby Baoran » 2019-1-09 @ 15:58

I was thinking of putting some new thermal paste and get some thermal pads for one of my gpus and I took the backplate off to see what size thermal pads I would need.

I was bit surprised. It looks like the ram chips have both thermal pads and thermal paste on them. Is this normal?
Do I need to also put both thermal pads and thermal paste there if I replace these?
The original thermal pads look quite squished so it is bit hard to tell the thickness of the pads. What thickness of thermal pads I would need to buy? 0.5mm? 1.0mm?
I will be most likely be ordering thermal grizzly minus pad 8.
