980 Ti G1 Gaming Thermal Pads

Hi, I have been trying desperately to find out the thickness of the thermal pads for the G1 Gaming, I emailed Gigabyte last week (Wednesday), didn't get a response yet. Not sure if it will just get ignored or perhaps they're very busy (or maybe they're looking into it) either way, i thought i would try ask here, maybe there is somebody who might be able to help me.

I found a clip off a YouTube video which displays the thermal pads somewhat, but i can't really tell the thickness out well: https://i.imgur.com/jcuFB1X.jpg / https://i.imgur.com/Yk97qfN.jpg

It's from this video (First 20-30 seconds)

By somewhat eyeballing it, my best guess is the vRAM pads are 1.5-2mm and the VRM are 0.5-1mm - If anybody has any input, I'd love it.

Kind regards

Edit: I found a picture of a 980 (non-Ti) G1 Gaming, the thickness may differ, I don't know for sure, the design is very similar https://imgur.com/qIK3lnW

Edit 2: For anybody looking for the answer, I used 1mm for VRM and 1.5mm for vRAM. Ultra Extreme Fujipoly pads, been doing well.
