Hi, people of TomsHardware

(Link to picture of card, won't let me post the picture to the thread for some reason)

I come here to ask a question I haven't been able to get help with anywhere else. Its been over a year since I've gotten it and decided to switch out the thermal paste. I opened the card to find these 3 strips on the black shroud? heatsink? The one on the far right is gone... Are these thermal pads ? Can whatever these are be replaced ? I'm so worried that I'm going to lose my card because of this. I have tried Reddit, LTT, and even contacted Zotac with no help once so ever. Thank you for taking the time to look at this, and I appreciate any/all help.

Thank you so much kind stranger - Would there be a specific brand, or size you might be able to recommend ? I certainly appreciate you taking time out of your day to help me. :) Thank you once again :)
Your more than welcome 😊
I use the grizzly brand. I redid a older RX580 with them and they worked really well.

They make different sizes, just make sure you get the right size, it doesn't have to be exact.
