Performance PCs & other Retail / online shops carry Thermal Pads
 
you do not buy a Kit ... you have to by the correct thickness of Pads & enough material to cutout what you need
 
EK thermal Pads are an inexpensive quality thermal pad
 
 
I've made may purchases for Performance PCs, but like anything else shop around .... usually the vendors on Amazon are more $$

Yes i'm well aware of that.
The only problem is that no one (except EVGA themself) knows the real measurements (not thickness) of the pads.
 
This one is somewhat correct, but where do i find one single pad that is 35mm x 123mm?

Re: 1080 TI FTW3 thermal pads 2019/11/01 09:21:08 (permalink)
When the length is not as long as you need you just place a second one next to the first - that works fine
 
Side by side would be trickery to do and keep it tight ... I'd cut from a large pad
 
It is Only Stacking thin pads to make thicker ones that is Not recommended
 
Sometimes you can buy  100x100 mm material - sometimes larger pads

BTW - there is a Current 15% discount from Performance PCs

Yes i'm well aware of that as well :)
But if you don't want to use two big pads just to get one? Thought EVGA would have better customer service then that.
And as i said, those measurements is just a guess from the OP

You Need to Cover the component
 
Most just measure their cards & current pads ... You do Not have to change them unless they are damaged
 
It would be nice to be able to Buy a thermal Pad Kit ..............   Make a suggestion Here: Complaints and Suggestions
 
I also look at the Water block manuals .... I happen to use EK water blocks .... it helps sometimes - far from perfect for Air cooler sizes

Re: 1080 TI FTW3 thermal pads 2019/11/01 09:46:31 (permalink)
Well i have two 1080 Ti FTW3 cards.
One i bought at the release. Day one i received it i mounted a EK block with original backplate.
For 5 weeks ago a bought a pre used 1080 Ti FTW3 card with a EK block + backplate. Want to use the original backplate just for the look. But the EK backplate only use 2 pads while the original uses 6 pads, so i have no template to go after unless i tear apart the backplate from the card 1 and that will give me two cards with destroyed backplate pads.

I own two EVGA 1080 Ti FTW's. Is there an exact thermal pad replacement kit on the market I can purchase for them? I don't want to have to snip, clip measure or trim anything. I want to clean off the surfaces and reapply the thermal pad kit. What do you all know?

Re: 1080 TI FTW3 thermal pads 2019/11/01 10:22:14 (permalink) ☼ Best Answerby minlillaponny 2019/11/01 11:13:53
Found this:  FAQ 59664
 
Answer / SolutionThis FAQ is only in regards to Geforce 10 series thermal mod.

In most cases, thermal pads used by EVGA are 1mm in thickness. This would include all VRAM thermal pads.

1080/1070 FTW:

Baseplate (Narrow) Pad: 26mm x 110mm x 1mm +/-0.1mm thickness
Backplate (Wide) Pad: 58mm x 110mm x 2mm +/-0.1mm thickness
 
 
& this:  https://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2963448
 
EVGATech_RayH
There is no simple answer to the thickness of the pads on the GTX1080 Ti FTW3 model, as they are not all one thickness.
- The ones on the underside of the baseplate, which contact components on the PCB, are all 1.25mm in thickness.
- The ones on the top of the baseplate, which contact the heatsink are 0.75mm and 0.25mm, 2 of each.
- The ones on the backplate are all 2.0mm thick except for the square one on the back of the GPU die, which is 0.75mm thick.

Re: 1080 TI FTW3 thermal pads 2019/11/01 11:15:36 (permalink)
And that info is not correct since the middle square part on the backlplate is only 0.75mm thick.
No disrespect to EVGA since i love their products, but they got to learn how to put out the right info in one place.

Re: 1080 TI FTW3 thermal pads 2019/11/23 14:16:32 (permalink)
When i was changing thermal paste i notice some thermal pad are pretty dry. Little touch and they fell off. So all stores in my country sell Thermal grizzly or arctic pads. so i bought arctic 0.5-1-1.5. I borrow from work vernier calliper for rough reading. and all backplate are 2mm and all under front plate are 1.3mm (the corners) the middle where is contact is 1.2mm. and here is my problem 1mm arent good enough. But if i use 1.5 iam little bit (removed)*, because Arctic pad are damn hard. They don´t compress lower and if i use them on all component after assembly GPU is bend. Those pad above front plate are 1.5mm, but if i use 1.5 arctic gpu is bend again. so i put Under all 1mm above 1mm+0.5 and back 1.5mm. But thanks to ICX all sensors show better temps. i remove stock fans and put 2x 140mm on gpu.  and i notice better temps 10-13c on GPU and 10-15c on other component. max GPU 55c , mem, power 30-40, only power4 is little bit higher 45 but sensor is on bak side.

So can sombody pls recommend some soft thermal pads??

and because i remove stock fans i bought fan splitter so i could use 2x normal fans on GPU connector so i could use afterburner for control. But what i dont understand origo fan is 12V 0.55A. 3000RPM now i have 2x 12v 0.14A 1500RPM and  at 50% fan speed i have 1500rpm so max. and if i use 80% nothing happend. I thought that fans are controled thru voltage exampl 50% fan = 7V and 100%=12V but if my fans going at max with 50%. Should i worry about fans or GPU connector??

thank you and sorry for my english

Try some EK thermal pads

You would figure at the very least. That a 3rd party tech company would be in the market making precision fit to spec replacement thermal pads for a large ranch of video cards. Instead, you are left with crappy options on replacing all the thermal pads Frankenstein style.

Call EVGA proactively. See what you can discover in the conversation. It couldn't hurt to get more opinions if EVGA even knows. At least bring closure to your burning questions. I would call twice over a two day period. Because you will most likely be getting two different responses from EVGA tech support reps.

These manufactures should've at least upgraded these Laird pads from the 1.2W/mK Tflex 300 to 2.7W/mk Tflex HD300.

W/mK is a number with no standardized testing procedure. The "1.2W/mK" specification is abnormally low (or they haven't resorted to creating abnormally high values like everybody else), and I have no doubt that some other manufacturer could test them and sell them at 7W/mK. How the test is performed and at what temperature the test is performed is not standardized and results in wildly different values.
I wouldn't get too wrapped up about it. I wouldn't change the pads because they are supposedly so bad. I would only change the pads because you are taking the card apart anyway for some other reason.

1.2W/mK is still "abnormally" enough just for other components. Or you can heat up the core with more thermal conductivity. Flexibility is the king. That's why HD300 stands out.
