i opened my 9600gt and the thermal pads around of it and its need to replace. i read somewhere that even though theres no thermal pads the gpu will work. only i need to replace is the thermal paste of cpu/heatsink? is is true? i want to re apply the thermal paste on heatsink of cpu.

I believe you are referring to the thermal pads that transfer heat away from the memory. If you do not have a medium to transfer the heat away from the memory then it will over heat and you will end up with a dead card.
