Backing plate for Gainward 560Ti 2gb?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Im wondering if there are any companies out there that make backing plates for Graphics cards?

I have 2x 560Ti 2gb cards on order (due to budget i was unable to purchase the 3gb 580's) and they have a RED PCB, it doesnt really fit in with my Orange/Black colour scheme, so i was hoping that i could find a PCB backing plate that i could buy and paint it Orange, or possibly make one myself...

Has anyone made their own PCB backing plate before?

Any help will be great appreciated!

Cheers,
Ishi

The 2GB version of Gainward is a non-reference PCB design (I think) and it is highly unlikely you will find a backplate for it.

The only GTX560 Ti that has a backplate is Colorful's iGame GTX560 but it uses reference design holes position (so, it will not fit yours) and its shape would not cover your cards totally. So, this is a no go.

I think your only option is to diy one. Sorry, not much help but just some moral support from me.

Any help is better then none! Cheers bud +1

Has anyone attempted making their own backplate that you know of, or any threads that might have something close to a guide?

I do remember seeing someone making a backplate for his AMD/ATI card but I cannot find that thread now.

However, here is a thread for a member doing one for his GTX460 with acrylic/plexiglas. As it is mainly for aesthetics (vs for thermal conduction), a non-metallic material should be ok.
If you make one, I suggest you have some vent openings as the PCB should still receive a little bit ventilation.

I hope this helps you somewhat.

It sure does mate, thanx again, i was mainly thinking of aesthetics as well, as the Red of the PCB wont exactly go with the theme i am attempting, that OCN logo looks fantastic!

I wonder if i could go acrylic painted black as the underside, then get clear acrylic with maybe an orange LED, or if i could get UV-Orange acrylic that would be the bomb!
