Thermal pad thickness shouldn't be a company sercret by any means! It's basic of maintenance and when I call tech support it says something when even they can't tell me what size to use? Wtf are people to do when the laptop runs out of warranty? Send it back? Dang not that complicated to replace pads and grease! Expressing concern and frustrastion, not directing any of this towards board members sorry if I come off assholish.
Honestly, I ordered .5 , 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0 mm thermal pads to hopefully cover this. Now beware that you do not stack thermal pads, it impacts thermal transfer and will make it run hotter. The pads I purchased have a higher rated thermal disepation and should help overall. After I measure and do a press check, I will let you know my findings.
Hello everyone, I am trying to replace all the thermal pads and thermal paste in my laptop but I have one doubt.Anyone knows what kind of thermal paste is the one in the picture marked in yellow?I would like to know if I can replace it and if must be by thermal pads or thermal paste and in case of thermal paste if I can use the same as for the processor and graphic card.Thanks in advance
I have a PH315-52 (Helios 300 2019 edition) and I used 1mm pads on the GPU VRMs.
