Read this if you're going to use thermal pads for GPU (G750)

If you are going to use thermal pads for GPU VRAM modules and other chips DO NOT use 1mm thick ones as they are too thick, won't make great connection with cooling pad and cause high temperatures almost immediately.

I have not tested it yet with 0.5 mm so they may be fine but 1mm is definitely too much.

The laptop was Asus Rog G750JZ but I'm sure all of the G750 models have the same.

Hello!

Can you please share with us if the 0.5mm pads worked out? What pad thickness did you end up with?
