GIGABYTE – AORUS GeForce RTX™ 3090 XTREME 24G thermal pad sizes

2mm fits well on the front side of the VRAMs. For the back, probably 2.5mm would be the ideal size but 3mm works well too, especially if you go with GELID Extreme’s series because its softness.

Don’t worry if the backplate is bending a bit, that’s fine if it’s not 100% straight after all.

VRAM front:80x40x2mm
VRAM back:80x40x3mm (or 2.5mm)
Pads on the side:1mm, 1.5mm

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.
