I recently upgraded my pc with a new cpu, motherboard, and m.2 drive and I didn’t realize the mobo gave me thermal pads to put on my m.2 since the mobo has a heatsink. Is it worth it to try and put the thermal pads on now?

The m.2 is a samsung 980 and the motherboard is an Asus ROG strix B550-F

Yes you should use it to make the most from the heatsink.
