EC360® GOLD 14,5W/mK Thermal pad Graphics card set
To keep graphics cards functioning properly, the graphics card's factory thermal pads need to be replaced every now and then. This can be associated with a lot of effort under certain circumstances: In order to achieve sufficient cooling of the various components, it is necessary that all pads have exactly the right dimensions, otherwise this will have a negative effect on the thermal conductivity.
The sets contain all the thermal pads needed for the replacement of the respective graphics card. You save yourself a lot of work because you don't have to measure and cut the pads all individually.
The thermal pads are pads from our EC360 GOLD series. They present the intermediate variant of high-performance thermal pads, which are on eye-level with premium thermal paste. The pads have an extraordinary thermal conductivity of 14.5 W/mK.
The pads are not adhesive, but stick a little, so they can be easily positioned. It is the perfect solution for heat-transfer in adverse surface conditions when the use of thermal paste is unsuitable. Handling is particularly safe, as the pads are electrically isolating and there is no risk of short-circuiting.
- Clean surfaces from dirt and other possible residue. If applicable, isopropyl 90% alcohol is recommended to ensure a clean surface.
- Remove one of the protective layers and place the exposed side of the thermal pad facing the surface of the chip. Once positioned gently press on it to make it stick.
- Remove the second protective layer and install the heatsink.
