Also they gave thermal pads and to be applied on these:

Now on the longer black chips they asked to put thicker 1,5mm thermal pad and on the one after that they say apply thinner 0,5mm thermal pad.. what I'm confused about is there is only 1 full piece of one size of pad, then thinner and thicker.

Need help please
My guess is they want you to cut the pad accordingly.
Thats what i had to do with my 3870X2 EK block.

There should be a template on what sizes to cut it on the instructions paper.
