My ASUS Crosshair VIII hero has thermal tape on the cover of the M.2 socket. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what might be a good replacement? I don't have a picture of it but it is quite thick.

    I use a stock thermal pad from x570 taichi and it helps to cool my nvme. Why do you want to change it?

    I have swapped out the M.2s quite a bit and the pads have become quite wrinkled.

    I think It's 1.5 - 2 mm. You can try to measure it in some part of the pad and add 0.3-0.5 mm as a result.
