HI to everyone!
Yesterdaty I changed the thermal paste on my switch and I have some doubts.
I still need to remove the pink paste and change it for some thermal pads.
What thickness of thermal pads is needed between the heatpipe and the metal shield?
0,5mm or 1mm?
Thanks in advance!

Well, 0,5mm is quite enough but, my first time when I changed it, I forgot to put a nut of it above the pipe joining the chipset, it must be done, not only between the pipe and the chipset.
Carefull, 0,5mm is enough yes, but be sure to not exceed the boundary of the chipset when applied 'cause once the pipe replaced, it will tamp and spread out.
Even if almost not used, overclock of memory needs a change of paste too (I didn't made it because of no use OC for Mem).
You'r welcome
