Regarding Thermal Pads on GPU Block
is it possible to reuse it on VRAM? as I was starting to build my PC and install the water cool, I didnt notice the thermal pads were new, and now Im stuck since I tried since yesterday to find a local store that sells it, to no succeed.
they do seem still in new shape, except not sticky. (been used for two months based on previous owner).
if its a big deal, then my only option is to order it online and wait till at least wednesday :censored:
they should be fine, not as good as new of course but it will only be a small temp difference if any.
could always order new and use current ones and flush system out in month or two as it will sometimes find crud in the system even after flushing everything.
can put some non conductive paste on the pads if you have some just to play it safe
Ya they'll be fine. They could be in very poor shape and still be sufficient for ram and VRMs.
Thanks for the response guys. Glad to hear its ok cuz I was pissed to hold off till at least wednesday. Will apply a very thin thermal paste on both sides to be safe.
Thank you so much guys.
