Gainward GTX 580 Phantom Backplate [SOLVED]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I've been considering to buy this backplate:
http://www.aquatuning.de/product_info.php/info/p10781_EK-Water-Blocks-EK-FC580-570-GTX-Backplate---Black.html

for my Gainward GTX 580 Phantom, but I fear that it won't fit to it. I was wondering if you knew if it would be able to fit?

Thanks,
Mathias

by the look of the name from your link, it won't fit, as the plate you found was intended for reference 580s and the Gainward cards aren't reference.

if you check on EK's website, the one you wanna buy is where it says FC-5X0 GTX GW, where the GW stands for...it's obvious isn't it? wink.gif
