EVGA GTX 480 Backplate...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has any GTX 480 owner installed the EVGA GTX 480 Backplate (for EVGA reference design) onto a different manufactured GTX 480 reference card?

They fit all reference designs. There are a few here with them on other cards, can't remember who they are right now.

My GTX580 DCU II doesn't sag as much as I expected it to. Though I'm not sure if it's due to the back plate or simply the quality exceeding my expectations. confused.gif
