    Hey my Adder WS is arriving tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone has the dimensions for thermal pads to be applied on the VRM (also changing thermal paste to Kryonaut)? Looking to get Fujipoly Extreme. Are there any other areas where one would recommend applying thermal pads? If so what dimensions would I need?

    Any other cooling modification recommendations are also appreciated.

    P.S.: I know I posted this question here:

    But I'd need a prompt reply as I am travelling on the 11th, barely giving me time to order from Amazon and recieve the package. Sorry if this is a problem.

    Those are very difficult pads to work with. I'd just run the machine stock for now on oads and make adjustments if you feel you need to.

    Might I ask what makes them particularly difficult to work with? I had presumed that, if you purchase the correct height, then it is mostly about cutting the appropriate shape, placing it and fastening as necessary. Is there something I am missing?

    Being hard and brittle they are very unforgiving on fitment and can have pressure issues as a result.
