Thermal Pad size for the Dash F15?

JellyFox01

Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone knows the ideal pad size for the Dash F15, because I am planning to replace my pads, but I need to order them. The common consensus from other threads say the F15's ideal pad size is 1mm, but I think that laptop is a little thicker so I just wanted to make sure. As an add on, is it worth buying some thermal paste for the CPU and GPU? or can I get away with pads?

Yes, the thermal conductivity of thermal paste is higher than thermal pads, so on high wattage components like the CPU and GPU you should use thermal paste.

English is not my first language, so please excuse any confusion or misunderstandings on my end.

I like to edit my posts a lot.
