Just replace with some good thermal paste, like Prolimatech PK-3. Don't use thermal pads.

I mean for VRM and memories not the chip itself, I done some researches and I saw people uses thermal pads for those.
The thing is that am confused about the thickness as I read people says 1.0mm,1.2mm,1.5mm etc...
so I want to ask if anyone know what to use for my GPU, or at least give me a general rule on how to pick the right thickness for thermal pads.

Use thermal paste for that too... It's not going to be worse than pads for cooling, and if you aren't using some super liquidic stuff, there should be no issue at all.
