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.

    In fact, I had only bad temperatures with 1mm on memory chips and GPU also. With 0,5mm, it’s very good.

    All thicknesses of thermal pads listed above needs to be reduced by 0.5mm (1.5mm to 1mm and 1mm to 0.5mm) Vram almost immediately throttled when I followed the guide. Vram temps were significantly better when I used 0.5mm thermal pads for everything but the 7mm by 70.7mm section where I used 1mm pads.

    What are you using to check vram temps? It is not present in HWinfo for this card.
