6700 XT MSI

MSI – Radeon RX 6700 XT GAMING X 12G thermal pad sizes

Required thicknesses are 2mm, 1.5mm, and 1.25mm.

The 2mm and 1.5mm are pretty obvious, a 80x40mm package is probably more than enough to cover these areas.

The 1.25mm is tricky though because it’s a rare type of thickness. You can either try more pressure on 1.5mm pads and see if that works, or another solution is to try 1mm pads and apply – strictly non-conductive – thermal compounds on them to fill the gap more precisely.

Front of PCB

  • 48x14x1.5mm (2 pieces)
  • 62x8x2mm (2 pieces)
  • 58x7x1.25mm (2 pieces)
VRAMs:48x14x1.5mm (2 pieces)
Rest of the front #1:62x8x2mm (2 pieces)
Rest of the front #2:58x7x1.25mm (2 pieces)

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.
