HEATKILLER® GPU-X³ GTX 690
Prior to the first commissioning of the
graphics card with installed back plate, the
distances between soldering lugs and backplate should be inspected visually. The
soldering lugs of the electronic components
may not touch the back plate. This could result
in an electrical short circuit that would damage
the hardware. The distance is generally
sufficiently dimensioned. Production may
however cause soldering lugs that are too long
on a few graphics cards. In this case, the card
must not be commissioned with an installed
back plate. If the card is nevertheless
commissioned, then this will be at one’s own.
Thanks for the Info .The instructions say that some videocards the Backplate can short out by touching it. So they are not mandatory. I will try before I buy Heatkiller Backplates.
The heatkiller backplate came with some standoffs to create some seperation from the board and backplate. Looks cool too
