Hello good folks. I want to know how to install thermal pads on a gpu. Yesterday I installed thermal pads on my graphics card. I only installed the pads on the card but not on the heat sink. Shall I install the thermal pads on both heat sink and the card? I mean will it not create a space between the heatsink and the processor of the card if I use a double layer thermal pads.

I used thermal pads as well as thermal paste. But I think my heat sink is still not working. I mean when I play a game the temperature increases rapidly. Then I checked my gpu and found that my gpu card was heated but the heat sink remained cool.

Okay so my pc specs are:
intel core i5-8400 2.80 ghz - 4.00ghz
corsair vengence 8gb 2400mhz
Sapphire R9-290 TriX 4GB
mobo- giganyte aorus b360m gaming 3
Toshiba 1TB
PSU- corsair CX-600 series



in my case I have 2 1300rpm 120 mm fans running
Also before entering a game I use to run my gpu fan at 100%
but still i can't resolve the heating issue
