As the title says, I am looking to replace the thermal pads on my MSI GPU. Can anyone tell me the sizes and thicknesses of the pads I will be needing. I ordered a 50 X 50 X 1.5 MM pad and I know that will not be nearly enough. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I'm thinking if you manage to find those pads online, then the dimension should be correct anyway.

Otherwise - if you think about cutting manually, you should disassemble the GPU cooler first. In meantime you can just use the onboard GPU instead (like if it takes time to get it delivered and you don't want to do the disassembly process twice just to get the measurements).

I took it apart and changed the thermal paste but I think maybe the paste is a bit to old so I ordered some new. I decided that I might need to replace the pads too since it is a 5 year old card and used quite a bit though never OC'D.

I have ordered the needed parts to do this now. Thanks. I am having issues with the card getting way past 80 C, when it never used to so yes, it's time before it get to toasty. Thanks.
