PS5 RAM temps of 1016A model

Hello, I want to replace the stock thermal material on the RAM modules because as we know Sony didn’t do a great job cooling them.
I want to use thermal pads instead so it covers the whole memory chip.
Is it worth it and will it make a difference?

I remember the result is reasonable.

This video made me considering the idea.
However there are not any tests. So I was curious if someone did try and tested it.
I guess Arctic thermal pads are better than the thermal putty which covering only the center of the memory chips.

Might make a difference, but its completely pointless. We haven’t seen any widespread issues with ram failing (and I honestly haven’t seen ANY issues from the ram dying), and the system stays quiet. If you want to replace the thermal pads you can, but don’t expect to see any difference whatsoever
