    Is it worth replacing the thermal pads? I remember graphics cards didn't even use them until recently. Would I be fine putting this back together with new thermal paste? It seems that replacing all the pads is not a cheap endeavour.

    If you can mould the mushy things back together I wouldn't bother. They are very expensive yes.

    I put it back together, and it ran a benchmark for a while before crashing. I realised that my global wattman settings had reset.
    I put frequency at -7.5% and set a more aggressive fan profile. I will try gaming later tonight.

    Playing Subnautica for 42 minutes with a stable 62C and a max 64C.
    I bumped my speed up to -5% and it went up to 63C an a max of 67%.

    I set CPU overclock to 4.6 and things look good.

    Gigabyte = Warranty void if cooler is removed.

    I think not. I'm not the original owner.
