    ROG G513QY Advantage Edition replacing chewi gummy paste on VRM/VRAM/Mosfits....

    In ASUS G513QY Advantage Edition, mosfets, vram and vrm had some gummy chewi paste, I guess its a thermal paste not melted pads?
    Planning replace all these chewi, gummy stuff (took them off already, waiting for pads delivery), once pads arrive in 2 weeks I will apply the pads, and then use the laptop again, also will be putting fresh LM on CPU/GPU.

    These are the chewi gummy stuff:

    What you guys think of these pads?

    Here a community posted photo of this laptop's motherboard with colors on each section so its easier for you suggest which colour goes with
    which thickness (mm) of thermal pad/paste:

    I grabbed 0.5mm 1mm and 2mm to cover all possible size needs of this laptop.

    Thanks!

    How about sizes? Could you please confirm sizes (thickness most important, in mm) for each zone?

    Vram (blue), mosfets, vrm etc...

    Thanks !

    Sorry, no idea. You can sometimes get an idea checking the existing pads with some calipers. Also, if you're a little off you can stack them to get other sizes. It's not ideal but pads seem to stack OK as long as they are clean.

    Well thats IF Asus used proper pads in Advantage Edition, but ASUS used gummy paste which smashed and squashed away when chamber is opened, so now its impossible to measure anything.

    Could you please consult with the engineers to suggest the sizes? I bet - many people will need it as they will eventually be repasting their units too.

    Thanks!

    Oh, I don't work for ASUS. This is a community forum for customers to communicate with each other and I'm a volunteer moderator.

    We did the repadding in my unit, it ended up :

    1. VRAM 0.5mm
    2. Chokes 0.5mm
    3. Mosfits 1mm

    Not sure if all units are same though.
