Can I replace the those heatpad things on my cards ram chips with normal thermal paste or do I have to get those pads?

You can use thermal paste. Might even see a drop in temps

i wouldn't advise it, it would just lead to a big mess.

Nah I got some AS5, was using that thermaltake white stuff... and I cleaned out all the dust in and around underneath the heatsink and everywhere else, running a new load temp of 85C, overclocked! thats much better than 93C on stock clocks New Idle = 60C

btw, I read that the RAM and the GPU are on a different level and paste wouldn't fill the gap, so I just left the pads.
