For any of you wondering, thermal pad width is 0.5mm for all of the EVGA graphics cards.  Any 0.5mm thermal pad you can find at places like FrozenCPU.com will work fine, if you need another.
 
This is only for graphics cards, not motherboards.  I'll leave this here for now, and later sticky it.

I may in the future.  For now, I'd rather people see it first.  Later on, it will likely be relegated to that thread.

Does using 1.0mm pads hurt? I bought some really quality stuff, some of the best thermal pads on the market. But not really noticing a difference. Might buy some .5mm and swap out the 1mm and see if its any better

Thickness and width are two different things.

Yes. You need to use the correct thickness pads. Thicker pads will prevent the cooler stand-offs from seating correctly to the PCB and could cause physical damage to the PCB and components soldered to it. The thermal pads will compress a little but not enough to squish down to the proper thickness needed. Using thicker than recommended pads can also cause the cooler to not make good proper contact with the GPU die causing elevated temps on the GPU.

well no..
 
TS > 0,5mm, No thats wrong, its 1mm sticky pads
 
i swapped my 980ti classy pads a month ago. and i used 1mm sticky as an replacement
 
get thermalpads from ebay instead  (blue or green OEM)  100mm X 100mm  for a dollar or so, and save a fortune
 
Dont buy from shops like frozencpu

Hi,
 
I am sorry for any confusion as the cards with 1MM thickness on the thermal pads are prior to the 10 series line of EVGA graphics cards.  I can confirm that the thickness of the thermal pads may change from model to model and due to this we do recommend requesting a free thermal pad mod from http://www.evga.com/thermalmod/.

The thermal pads that came with my EKWB gear is awesome.
Cooling three R9 290s from 2013 to 2017 and they were still nice and soft, performance was the same too.

The OP is very old and should NOT be relied upon for cards made since then.

Many of the newer GPUs (10 series & newer) use several different thicknesses of thermal pads
 
Best to Ask about your specific Card in the Correct section of the Forums   https://forums.evga.com/EVGA-Graphics-Cards-f5.aspx
