    If you had it, you can try, but 1.0mm pads are recommended

    just watch these videos and its not rlly difficult it just takes time and u better apply some safety measures to the cpu and gpu like conformal coating and tape 33+ or 88+ they both do good high resistance to heat like 105+ by the way clean ur fans just take ur time when applying liquid metal do all the research u need my pc was running hot af went up to 100 now max was 79
