Its a shame, the upper side of the card is a bit ugly. When I have time may I mod the card to hide the white part of upper side.

Have an alphacool backplate on mine and it does get warm to touch but they wont sell it as a standalone , just like asus wont sell the Mini OC one
Ok...just out of curiosity I ran 3dMark basic edition with Asus GPU tweak set to OC and this is what I saw.....
GPU core clock max 1,348 Mhz
GPU memory clock max 1,757 Mhz
GPU Video clock max 1,248 Mhz
Idle temps 37 degrees C
Max temps 80 degrees C
Memory 4,096 MB
Core clock 1,109 MHz
Memory bus clock 1,758 MHz
The backplate was warm to the touch...a little warm. Hope this helps (and hope normal....)Edited by customgtp - 2/13/16 at 6:47pm
