View Full Version : Thermal pads for the GPU

05-19-2013, 04:59 PM
Hello Sirs

does anyone in here know the thickness required for the VRM's and the Memory for the 670M?

thermalpads: 1.5mm or 1mm? or thicker?
or both? because it looked like the VRM's had more gap than the memory's/memories <- :P

got lazy when I repasted it... just put a gunk of Arctic MX-4 on them... since I didn't have thermal pads laying around.

i also would like to know as i havw sent my g57vw for rma twice now for overheating 85c to 90c after a few weks playing starts to over heat again so i think i will just get some decent paste! and do the job myself!!!

@SpasTaz0917, based on what i saw in my g55, i think it's a 1mm. i too don't have thermal pad i just reused the old ones.

@xperiaplayerpro, for gpu, i use dot method with prolimatech pk-2 (work nicely; idle at 46c, never exceeded 73c for long-hour gaming at room temperate; and it's hot here!). for cpu, i use tuniq tx-4 (this one spreads so easily; again, dot method; yes i am lazy).
