Quick question guys...
I have 2 of the EVGA reference 670 cards and bought a couple AquagraFX waterblocks for them(they'll be here on the 8th).
Do I need back plates for them or is it OK to go nekid?

Backplates are there for aesthetics and for support to keep a card with a heavy cooler/etc from sagging.

I have the Arctic Cooling Hybrid Cooler and it really really works well smile.gif I have an ambient temp of 33C. Out of the box, my card reaches at around 65C full load in Heaven. With the hybrid cooler, they went down to a friggin 48C!You can check the pic of my system for your reference.

only thing about that is if the cooler fits the Asus dc2 670. If you could measure the distance between the mounting holes for the cooler maybe, I would be appreciative.

Sorry, I would love to measure the distance but it is already mounted on my system and I'm currently doing a 24 hour Prime95 test right now. I guess a Google search or emailing Arctic Cooling directly will give you an answer. I know that the Asus GTX 670 doesn't use a reference 670 PCB but I swear that I've read an article wherein he used the same video card for his Hybrid Cooler review.

Ill look through that link. When I emailed AC a few weeks back they gave me a generic response that "ASUS is non-reference design blah blah blah ill have to do my own research to ensure it fits blah blah blah"
