Memory temp higher after pad/paste replacement

Hey guys, I have a MSI 5700xt that was running at 92 memory temp after clocking. I replaced thermal pads on two other cards last week and it helped big time. Just did this card and put it back in my rig and mem temps shot up to 106, no idea why. Only thing I can think of is this area of the radiator I couldn’t get the pink pad off so I did my best and put new pads down. Do you think I should use paste instead to fill gaps? I’m also concerned maybe the pink was 1mm vs. the 1.5mm I’m using. Didn’t check with a caliper on this one, assumed all 5700xts are 1.5.
