- The scrissor sign next to a size means it can be cut out from that slice of thermal pad. It is not the actual size! Example: 80x40x2mm
- One dimension size means it’s the thickness of that pad. Example: 1mm
- Two or three dimension sizes – with no scrissor sign – means it’s most probably an actual size. Example 100x14x1.5mm
Sizes you find here come from various sources. Most of them reported by my clients whom successfully replaced their GPUs’ factory thermal pads with high quality aftermarket pads – getting significant results in their temperature drop. Some of these sizes are actual measurements and others just collected from random users on such websites like Reddit, YouTube or official / unofficial forums.
Do your own research
Please note that I cannot take any responsibility for the sizes appearing here. Do your own research as well before buying and replacing anything.
- Make sure your pads and GPU die contacts well with the heatsink.
- Always test your graphic cards and devices in controlled environment.
2mm are too thick. 3mm for the back plate works fine. I recommend 1mm at the front because the main processor does not touch the cooling body and the card won’t work as it is supposed to and will reach more than 100°C real quick.
To sum up:
1mm for the front
3mm for the back
Thank you! Sizes been updated.
Another user reported 1.5mm on the front side.
