- 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
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.
Hey – does this apply to 3080ti models too?
There is something wrong here with the numbers listed. No. 2 and 5 should be (nearly) identical, yet listed thicknesses are very-very different. Pad 3’s size looks to be listed for pad 5. Pic shows 1.5 mm for no. 7, yet numbers on the side say 2 mm.
there is another tiny 2mmx3mm piece being missed in the diagram it is hidden inside the card holder. Also for mining upgrade purpose, all pads thickness to the front side can be increased by +0.5mm, which are 2mm and 2.5mm – instead of original 1.5mm and 2mm.
