MSI – Radeon RX 5700 XT MECH OC thermal pad sizes

There are 8 GDDR6 modules and each is roughly 12x14mm.

According to my client, the upper two VRAM modules require 1.5mm thickness. The rest of them, on the left and right side of the GPU die require 2mm though.

You will need about 1344 square millimeters of thermal pad coverage, so you can safely cut them out from a 80x40mm slice.

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.
