gigabyte 7870 windforcex3 oc edition. advice/help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey guys!

i have the above gpu,and i would like to make a custom backplate for it,to match the rest of my rig.

http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/36677-gigabyte-hd-7870-oc-powercolor-hd-7870-pcs/
there is a link to the pcb.

i would just like advice on whats the best way to make it or if it's possible.

i was going to make it out of acrylic with adding some vents as well as thermal pads possibly if it will help.
there's not many screw type areas. wondering if i could use the the 4 main gpu area screws and use the
thermal pads for the rest?
any help is appreciated guys.smile.gif
