    Just use something like K5-pro instead of high performance thermal pads. Otherwise you're gonna dump a lot of unwanted heat into the already saturated heat pipes/heat sinks. VRM's don't need as much cooling like the cpu and gpu. They're rated to around 120C and it's very unlikely that they're heating up to anything even close to that. If you're not running into power throttling due to VRM overheating, don't try to "fix" it because it's fine the way it is.
