GIGABYTE – GeForce RTX 3090 Vision OC 24G thermal pad sizes

You can change just the VRAM pads if you want to solve the thermal throttling issue but here is a more detailed guide if you want to go for a full replacement.

See second attached picture.

  • Number 1 is 2mm, OP suggests you can safely go with 3mm there too.
  • Number 2 to 5 is 2mm but even 2.5mm works fine.
  • Number 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 is 1.5mm
  • Number 8, 9, 10, 11 is 1.5mm

Sizes have been updated according to my client’s experience which is differ from original source.

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.

Tips

  • Make sure your pads and GPU die contacts well with the heatsink.
  • Always test your graphic cards and devices in controlled environment.
