Sizes guide

  • 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

About sizes

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.

    Installing pads on front of VRAM should be 1.5 mm, not 2mm as it’s too thick causing the PCB to bend and die doesn’t make good contact leading to over temp

    • Thank you! Thickness has been updated. Can I ask how soft was the pad? Did you use GP-Extreme or other brand and series?

    Hi i today changed for 3 times thermal pads o this gpu result is VRM size is 1.5mm but need soft shore next on the side is about 1mm pads should be harder than on memory about 50 shore, back plate i used 3mm but ideal is 2.5mm and use soft pads about 25 shore OO… I used pads Arctic tp3 and tp1 in double 1.5mm tp3 and 1.5mm tp1 with MX-6 is result in Fractal R6 with 6x P14 PWM fans are temperatures on fhd, core ~63, hot spot ~75, memory to ~80 maybe better results with only tp3 pads but i dont want risk and i added backplate pads to all 4 sides around core and on core i used 1mm tp3+ 0.5 tp1 pad
