    I'm curious if there are kits or general advice about appropriate thermal pads for this. I think the pads I have are not making great contact with the VRMs so wanted to look into replacing them. I've no idea where to start, though, and what might be most recommended.

    Generally ic you can shave 0.5mm around you'll see about a 13c reduction in temps. I would get a 0.5mm and 1mm sheet and look at replacing the usual offenders like vram.

    Any particular brand, etc. that you would recommend for use? I'm completely ignorant, but Throttlestop is pointing at VRM temps as being limiting at the moment, hence my thought to replace the pads.

    You want it soft and compliant to maximise core contact. Thermal grizzly pads worked well for me.

    Thermal grizzly worked well. I had to make somewhat taller stacks by layering - there are some significant gaps between the heatsink and the components in a number of places; it all seems to work - the VR THERMAL CORE and RING warnings/red flags are all gone from limit reasons under ThrottleStop and thermals look decent.

    Just double check every single chip is making contact.

    TG Minus pad has a thermal conductivity of 8W/mW and costs the same or more as Gelid Extreme pads (12W/mK)

    I've used the ThermalGrizzly ones on all my hardware since their release. Can attest they're good quality.

    I've remounted my GPUs multiple times and the pads still look great after 2 years

    Under what thickness and conditions? Without details you can't compare these figures anyway.

    All of their thermal pads are rated for 12W/mK at any thickness. I'm sure they will provide a product spec sheet if you ask them about under what conditions. :)
