Pad with VID-NX680

Postby tistou77 » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:46 am

Hello

With this block, there are 2 thickness of pad, 0.7T and 1T, (before it was gray and pink) on the instructions manual is indicated using the 0.7T for everything.
What is the use 1T?

Thanks ;)
sorry for my english :D

Some video cards may not be a perfect reference design having slightly different heights in the components. If one of the thin pads is then not making sufficient contact you can replace it with a thicker pad.

It's also for if you don't like using the grey pad you can use the pink it will not harm the card. I also asked the same question so I called koolance and they said its there for extra padding if you don't like using the grey pad.
