so this morning before i left for work i was looking inside at all the stuff i have spent too much money on feeling pretty good about it. but i couldn't shake that feeling like something more than just sleeving was missing.... i was thinking about it the whole way to work (about a 45 min drive) and RIGHT as i was pulling into my usual parking spot i had an epiphany! BACK PLATES! MY 470s NEED BACK PLATES!. i think their is some thing that looks unfinished about the bare PCBs in this thing. so now i need to decide if the EVGA ones with the little holes or the EK ones will look better... i think the EK ones will be better but im not sure if they will fit right with out a water block on the other side...

thanks again for all the votes for MOTM, i couldent have won with out them

I think the EK ones would lookd better. But some of the holes wouldn't line up.

EK back plate

Hmm... EK looks nicer IMO, but EVGA is in black... EK + black paint =

You're not going to have these under water are you? Because the EVGA back plate looks like it would be better for air cooling. Cooling the back of the PCB can be helpful - I stuck a 92mm on the back of my card and temps dropped about 10C. I still get 92-93C when folding but it's better than 100+.

Before you ask, I could definitely cool it down more by increasing the fan speed but I'd rather have it quieter than cooler. Yeah, it's silly but the 8800 isn't worth much and I'd like a new card anyway... it would be an excuse

nope this project started in march (wow was it really that long ago?! ) and you joined in july

thanks for the congrats. but shame on you for not voting

the EK one comes in black too but im almost positive that it wont fit so i think ill get a couple of the EVGA ones. i think your probably correct about that air VS water cooling thing...

meh oh well...

i need to order some stuff this week i need cash though

I like the evga one cause it has lots of holes for fresh air. The EK one is more for watercooling instead of aircooling.

And thats pretty cool, you wont have to wait for funds

Thats the price you pay for perfection
I love Nils' stuff, though I could have 2 extra gpu's up and running for the money I used for sleeving etc

Green sleeving is awesome. Maybe a few meter of blue and red too. You have a few red and blue lights so you could give it a try
