Dead video board because of wrong thermal pads on my iMac 27"

Hi all

Ι paid more than 600euro to replace my video board with new on my iMac 2010 A1312.

However technician obviously didn't know about K5-PRO so he used some good quality thermal pads. Unfortunatelly these pads are thicker than what needed and as result heat sink didn't touch properly on the GPU and it got overheated and it failed in less than six months.

I am publishing this hoping that other users will not do the same mistake and waste money as well as one of these rare to find boards.
