    Does anybody know what thickness pads and how much i would need for a Quadro P5200 on the Zbook 17 G5? Would one sheet of 100mm x 100mm for each thickness be enough?

    @SnakeSK Thanks for all the tips. With your guidance and the HP maintenance manual I was able to replace the pads and the paste on my Zbook 15 g5. Used Arctic MX-4 and Gelid Solutions Extreme Thermal Pads 0,5 / 1,0 mm. Saw a significant decrease in CPU temperatures, although I still find that my fan kicks in quite often and immediate during 3D-CAD work.

    For others with this issue, here's a way to quite easily control the Turbo Boost option from Win 10 energy settings, which seems to be the number 1 reason for the loud fan noise: http://www.geeks3d.com/20170213/how-to-disable-intel-turbo-boost-technology-on-a-notebook/#_24
    Before repasting, I turned Turbo Boost of during normal work, and turn it on during more demanding work.

    And, if others are planning to do some repasting, here's the Zbook 15 G5 maintenance manual: https://content.etilize.com/User-Manual/1048605596.pdf (It seems to be incorrect in that it mentions that there are thermal pads on the GPU and CPU, while there is only thermal paste on it. The thermal pads are used for the areas around the GPU and CPU).
