replacing thermal pads on 5850 vrms

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I finally recieved the thermal pads i ordered from ek (they're in Slovenia apparently) and am looking to replace the current ones.

I have the 1mm and .5mm since when I emailed the ek guys thats what they said I needed. Didn't say which go where tho lol, thats where the great brains of OCN come in! so....



I don't need to replace the RAM thermal pads, just the skinny long one and the single. .5 or 1mm you guys think?

EDIT: if you're curious... its these pads

3-5 W/mK was the highest of any pads i've seen

Remove the circled, and replace with new pads.

Wait, NM. That's the memory. Sorry. See the white gloop next to the fan hole on the left? Remove that sticky stuff. That is for the VRMs.

Presuming the people you ordered from knew what they were doing, did they give you a lot more of one size or the other? The one you got more of is probably for the memory. If it's the same amount, look at the chips ... which one's stand up higher off the board, memory, or VRM? The taller chips probably take the thinner pads ... unless the offset on the cooler is different.

I don't think it should be *that* hard to just 'reason' your way to the right answer

They're both the same area, and its kinda hart to tell which is higher... didnt want to put the wrong ones on then boot and die lol
