    A buddy of mine has taken apart his X1950XTX and has removed the thermal pads that tranfer the heat to the stock cooler. He has made a temporary repair to get it running, But he was wondering about replacements for the pads he has removed.

    He and i both have spent some time reserching the purchase of those fibery little pads, all to no avail. If there is anyone who could provide a link, or even a replacent version, whithout haveing to purchase the whole cooler just to get the pads?

    IDK, but the stock thermal pads on the X1950's might have some thickness to them. The thermal tape and pads I have seen on the market are paper thin and so don't even come close to filling the gap between a chip and it's cooler. I have order some replacement pads for my AC5 for my X850XT from the AC ebay store. If you know the thickness of the oem pads, just look through the list here and find some that will work: http://stores.ebay.com/Arctic-Cooling-RMA-parts_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ0QQftidZ2QQtZkm

    Yes, you can. Their all terrible though. If you absolutely have to use thermal pads of any kind, use shin-etsu.
