Thermal pad/paste GPU

I took apart my laptop my GPU was getting too hot causing my laptop to shut off.
Took it apart.
My GPU i put a thermal pad on it.
Should i put thermal paste with the thermal pad?
Or just the thermal pad by it self?
{I've both of them already}
Please reply
Thanks, Tom

  1. Remove the old pad and either replace it with another pad or use thermal compound. Do not use compound and pad together.
  2. Ok got that part. My thermal pad is a little bigger than my GPU chip should i cut it same size as the GPU or leave it?
  3. Unless it's significantly larger, to the point of interfering with other components, just leave it as is.
  4. Thank 4 yours time!
