Replacement thermal pads for video card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a 6970 overclocked and under water cooling. When you put on the waterblock you have thermal paste on the actual GPU and those little gel like thermal pads that go over the V-Ram. Where can I find those type of thermal pads to replace the old ones that came with my waterblock. The thing is I don't know what type of thermal pads they are. I know they're are two different kinds. There are the ones that are like the OEM pads that come with stock heatsink's that melt under heat then there are the jelly like ones used on on V-Ram that don't melt. How do you tell the difference? Obviously I don't want the ones that melt I want the ones that fit over the V-Ram.

I generally use the EK thermal pads like these If you look for the installation guide for your block it should tell you what thickness is required and where. Main sizes seem to be 0.5mm, 1mm and 1.5mm thick.
