    Got a new machine 1080 is hitting 90C with LM on it. Should i replace the pads with fuji or is that a waste? I have the regular pads from eurocom

    Just replacing pads with the same height ones is a waste of money unless the originals are crumbling.

    I need specifics on the sizes of the pads i need to purchase and possibly a video on what goes where? Im getting 90c on my machine and i think its do to the cheap pads on the heatsink. Unless its a vbios issue (1080 from P870TM1-G on P775TM1-G) I have undervolted the gpu.

    If you are seeing 90 degrees its your GPU core which is running hot. The thermal pads don't affect the core temp unless they are too thick and reducing pressure on the die. Have you repasted the GPU core? If not, do that first before you replace the pads. Use something like Gelid GC Extreme, IC Diamond or something else thicker for the best temps - Kryonaut is also good but it has a tendency to dry out if the fit isn't perfect (which it likely isn't on any laptop).

    It has fresh put Lm on it from 2 days ago. I made sure i put a little on the heatsink so it could make contact with the core

    I'd try the paperclip mod. Even if you spread it on both sides, if the heatsink doesn't make good contact with the chip, then LM won't be effective and may even be worse than a thick thermal paste that can bridge a larger gap.
