GIGABYTE – GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ GAMING OC 8G thermal pad sizes

You will need at least one pack of 80x40mm from each required size. My client reached significant results in its temperature drop after replacing factory pads with high quality after market pads.

According to my client the backplate rather needs 3mm thickness, however some sources mention 2.5mm.

One can even count on 20-30 celsius drop on its core and hot spot temperature by upgrading this unit.

Pads on the side:1mm, 1.5mm
Backplate:3mm (or 2.5mm)

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.
