Thermal pads for the GPU

Level 7
Hello Sirs

does anyone in here know the thickness required for the VRM's and the Memory for the 670M?

thermalpads: 1.5mm or 1mm? or thicker?
or both? because it looked like the VRM's had more gap than the memory's/memories <- 😛

got lazy when I repasted it... just put a gunk of Arctic MX-4 on them... since I didn't have thermal pads laying around.
rig: Impact VII / 4790K / Crucial Ballistix SP 16GB 1600Mhz/ 256GB 850 Pro
Corsair AX760 / H105 AIO Watercooling / Bitfenix Prodigy
laptop: G75VW 3630QM / 670m /16GB RAM / 256GB 840 Pro + 750gb/ BD drive
Gaming OC for 670m 750/1750

i also would like to know as i havw sent my g57vw for rma twice now for overheating 85c to 90c after a few weks playing starts to over heat again so i think i will just get some decent paste! and do the job myself!!!

@SpasTaz0917, based on what i saw in my g55, i think it's a 1mm. i too don't have thermal pad i just reused the old ones.

@xperiaplayerpro, for gpu, i use dot method with prolimatech pk-2 (work nicely; idle at 46c, never exceeded 73c for long-hour gaming at room temperate; and it's hot here!). for cpu, i use tuniq tx-4 (this one spreads so easily; again, dot method; yes i am lazy).
