    Got a RX 580 that i need to change the thermal pads.
    The memory thermal pads is 1mm and vrm is 1,5mm.
    Can i apply 1 or 2 layers of 1mm on the vrm or need to be precise 1,5mm?
    Because i got like 100pcs 10x10 1mm.

    Thanks.

    I think you can apply 2 x 1 mm on VRMs, little bit thicker shouldn't be a problem.

    Maybe slightly worse than having one 1.5 mm but hardly will make huge difference I think.
