Does anyone have the thickness of the pads and total area needed so I can place the order and not leave very much extra (stuff is very expensive). I plan to cover the front and back of the card. Upon removal it looks like they are 0.5mm but I'm sure I can't be the first to do this.

EVGA uses a face plate and it covers everything around the GPU core. Do the pads come off? I'm not pulling a GTX 980 to see if they do.

Surely they do. Honestly I've always gone with the g1 or msi so this is my first evga. I'll get the card on Monday so I will let you know. At the bare minimum I plan to repast with gelid. If the case doesn't come off I'll be very shocked. Pads are far as past experience come off just fine. Plus replacing with pads such as fujipoly extreme ultra typically yield a much higher stable OC as far as memory goes and usually a bit on core also. As far as I see it its untapped power I'm not using unless I do it. Haha

Yeah, those fujipolys are nice. Need to re yank these Tis out and redo them with some fujipoly pads.

These new EVGAs come with a cover over its VRAM and PCB with core expose. Found an answer, seems on EVGA site it states 1.0mm thick pads.

Really directly on the site? Wow how could I miss that. I searched for a good bit before posting for others advice. I'll do some measurements when it comes in so I can order enough. All goes as planned I'll post up a short tutorial. It was the thicknesses that always get me hard to gauge without calipers and often there will be several sizes ranging from 0.5-1.5mm depending on location distance to sink etc. if they all are even and only one size then that not only saves time it saves a good bit of money and math calculating the correct area of each pad while simultaneously dividing out the correct cuts to ensure you only use what you need bc those pads although highly effective are not cheap. Do you mind posting the link you found it on in case I can't locate it?

This the place I found the answer. 2nd post.

Awesome thanks man. Odd though. Taking a look at the thermal plate and the pad locations it really doesn't make any sense. Looking at the rear of the plate not all components are covered. Seems odd. Seeing it in person may explain more but from the picture it seems it could benifit from having more on the section on top of the fan. Also my version will have the acx2.0 fans which although slightly different in design for sure hopefully have the same contact thickness etc.

Hi, I'm running CRT VGA - DVI 144hz and BenQ Display-port 144hz on one GTX980, i can not get the GPU to an idle state when not in use, but when running my main @ 144hz and my second on 120hz the GPU idles nicely. Does any one else have the same issue when running two monitors at the same Hz?

Do thermal pads really make that much of a difference between the various manufacturers? I don't know what EK sent with my GPU waterblocks but they are working fine and only been in use for a few months. I would hate to break down my blocks and backplates if it is just going to be a waste of time over a silly degree or two. And yes, those fujipoly strips are expensive.

Yeah, they not cheap, but I still have left overs when I did my OG Titans. Plus, I want to redo these Tis since I was not the one who put the blocks on. I am picky like that. Same with vehicles, I have to see the part or have replaced it myself before I am content (especially when concerning brake pads). Plus the temps are bugging me. Then again I do have them OCed darn good while folding.

I know people spend a lot of time comparing different brands of TIM but never seen anyone get OCD and do an in depth review of thermal pads.
