What chip needs thermal pads?

I'm troubleshooting a PS4 that's overheating and shutting itself down.

Now I notice there's no thermal pads on any of the chips on the motherboard and I don't know which one needs a thermal pads replacement.

Can anyone fill me in on what chip needs it?

RAM chips that surround the CPU, on both sides.

For CPU you need proper thermal paste, instead of any generic rubber pads.
