They don't get any hotter than the core, which is 70*C.

Anyone else notice they're still using "ATI Technologies" on the FCC compliance sticker?biggrin.gif

If you mean the MOBO VRMs then sure tongue.gif
I'm more worried about that hotspot on MOBO than the VRMs on the GPU. Sure reference cooler is gonna be subpar compared to AIB bigger coolers and custom boards with differently placed VRM. Still nothing out of the extraordinary, not amazing temps. neither bad ones, just normal. I've seen worse FLIR on GPUs irregardless of brand.

So looking at some ot the leaks so far, the RX 480 does not have a backplate. Yet we have seen cards with backplates on the production line.

These pics show a card with a back plate yet they look like stock cards. I assumed they were RX 480s and was surprised it had a backplate.

The pictures from computerbase.de show no such blackplate on the RX480.

Crazy theory: Maybe Oj00's source was talking about Vega in October, and he mis-interpreted them and thought Polaris in October?

My understanding is that xfx reference cards will come with a backplate

That's XFX cards. XFX cards have backplates, but they removed the images showing their backplates because Sapphire complained to AMD.

So even though XFX reference cards won't be advertised as having backplates, at least the first batch will have them.

I don't know why some people are so in love with backplates. They just look nice and trap in heat.

that's believable, Sapphire hardly ever uses a backplate on anything. Should just accept that people like them and use them too

It gives me a piece of mind when I man handle my cards during installation.

With a backplate, I can drag it across the carpet and not worry about a thing.

FYI, you should't buy any used GPUs from me. It's for your own good.

That ojo guy is getting way to much credit. He posted nothing more than a weak troll with no evidence whatsoever.. The only reason it gained any traction was all the Nvidia loyals jumped on it immediately, including a bunch of shameful journalism by click-bait websites.

Misinterpreting the Vega launch was brought up at the time iirc, and he said that wasn't the case. All he did was insinuate that the 1080 could easily surpass 3GHz, and tried to spread nonsense about Polaris.

He doesn't deserve anywhere near the "attention" he's gotten.
