Question Thermal Pads came out a bit mangled when replacing thermal paste.

Sure thought someone would know the thickness of the pads.

I have no idea what they are.
Maybe this video may help with a way to determine since nobody is commenting.

The vid is for a 3080 but his technique and tools may still apply.
Check time stamp area of
9:15 and forward.
Good Luck !!!!!

From what i searched they seem to be 1 mil thick, ordered some thermal grizzly pads. And i dont see a link to a video at all, dunno if it got removed by auto mod or something.

thank you :)

Best to order multiple sizes. 1mm, 2mm and possibly 1.5mm. Ideally you use the thinnest pad that will fill the gap.

Worst thing you can do is undersize them (pretty sure I am in that boat right now, VRMs don't really contact my waterblock significantly) My upcoming vacation I will order a better waterblock (I should probably order in the next few days actually)
