If I put 2,8 and 2,3 mm it will be fine ?because I can not find size 2,75 and 2,25 mm
Not positive should be but you will want to use soft pads that squash easily, some of the higher thermal conductive pads are quite hard

Member @Svet has done more of this than I have. and I tend to prefer thermal Putty over pads.

Thermal putty good for thickness until 1 mm otherwise it's not help about temperature,in my case it 2,75 and can help only thermal pads

Putty is good up to 8mm

And the Information posted is all we have and it is not easy to get it can take several hours or more for the info to be gathered and made available.
Some times only way is for is someone to find the GPU take it apart and measure the pads reassemble and supply the Moderation team with the info.
Things may have been easier if the MSI development/Design team and engineering teams or whatever teams were involved in the development of the GPU had published the GPU designs in the Manual for the GPU.
If you need a bit more detail try EK water block or Thermaltake I think they may have more detailed information.

ALI Express have some Thermal Putty as well
I do not normally recommend them as they can be quite slow and some products may not be genuine
Personally, I find putty to be way easier and less hassle.
30g will do that average GPU front and back Some like 3090 will need closer to 40g
All depends on the thickness and number of components to be covered with the Putty
And the couple of GPU I have done a 5700XT and VEGA 64 get better thermals than the Pads that were installed.
Have also used it in several Notebooks and I use the K5 for things like SSD enclosures Stuff you only need to do once as it is a bit of a pain to clean up sometimes.

Yes sure not standart,I want use 2,5+0,3 mm and 2+0,3 mm brand fehonda thermal pads have 0,3 mm size
So your looking at these ones and thinking of stacking the pads should work as stacking does not seem to make a difference

tomorrow I will open the video card and measure the thickness with plasticine!and I will send you thickness of my GPU msi rtx 2060 super oc

Hi,I already check out,and it's 2 mm all 8 pads on msi rtx 2060 super OC! It's not 2,75 and 2,25 mm
And that is another problem same model may have different Thermal pads if a cooler or PCB design gets changed or pads used have a lot of compression

Remember that the idea is for these pads to be squished between the heatsink and the IC. Most likely they want thicker pads to cause compression for better heat transfer.....

First I try 2,8 and 2,3 but it not good and my gpu after 5 seconds go up to 78° when put 2 mm everything fine and GPU now 64-65 °
