I need to replace my thermal pads and wondering how to clean properly off of memory at 3:29 like in that vid. I can't find a tutorial anywhwere on that part. Even in this vid he just magically has new pads on at the end.

I scrape them off with a credit card or something plastic, then I clean up the residue with 90% rubbing alcohol.

thanks, I was going to try a pastic card. Wasn't sure how fragile the memory is and such. Don't want to ruin the 1080ti
