Hello Lionelng,

 

Greetings.

 

Thermal pads are usually part of the heat assembly so there may not be any FRU available here in parts lookup specifically. 

 

What works with most  enthusiast is getting the full set or the thinnest pad initially to make adjustment.

 

You can double check if yours comes with the pads or just thermal grease.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

Both the CPU & the GPU are using thermal grease, while the surrounding chips are using thermal pads. It really hard to gauge with naked eye and not possible to measure them as they are in compress state. Hence, i wish to know the actual thickness to buy. Hope some kind soul will be able to give me some advice. Thks in advance. 

 

Regards

Lionel
