    So I was taking apart my P870KM and removed the vapor chamber (Hard to take off still is stuck to the CPU heatsink its so caked...) and the thermals were so caked to the Gpu is ripped off 2 Memory Modules and the Connections leading from the die to them. There looks to be GLUE possibly on the pads? Or so used up they are turning white from green.. The White Spots are a lot more sticky than the Green Parts off the Pads. If it is Glue the question is who would do something like that!? The previous user or the reseller? The pads are so stuck to the heatsink I have to scrape them off... Bought the system used a week ago obviously not well taken care off... This is an XoticPC BTW.. For anyone curious... Never seen anything like this so thought I would Share it... Pretty Pathetic... So I guess I'm looking for a 2nd 1080 then...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Never seen that, who would glue pads and even if it was glue from both side of thermal pads, i dont understand why your pad didnt broke in two parts while you removed it. Then i dont know if it is the quality of your pictures, but your slave gpu has sign of beeing "cooked"

    I was gonna say you could probably get those chips soldered back on with a hot air station but then I looked closer and saw the tears in the pcb as the layers were pulled apart :eek:

    Reminder why not to use adhesive

    Memory chip pads should be 0.5mm, what thickness are they?

    Also no, while it should perhaps adhere slightly (the pad can stick so they stay with the heatsink or the card) bit maybe with 1/10th that adhesion?

    Those are not factory pads for sure.

    They were thin like document paper or printer paper. Not 0.5mm
