    Question Thermal pads for the GPU

    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.

    @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).
