GTX 570 Owners - Get the GTX 580 backplate from Evga!  

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I ordered 2 backplates originally and ended up using only one. The mods over at Evga confirmed that the GTX 580 backplate will fix the GTX 570 no problem. However, it is labeled GTX 580

Once the mods confirmed that the ship date for the GTX 570 officially will be sometime in Jan 2011, my brother was sad haha

So what you can do is just use acetone and it will remove the lettering no problem at all and it will not harm the finish!

Here's one completed with the words "GTX 580" removed

The 580 backplate will fit the 570.. but why not just wait for the 570 one. It will look better without you removing the 580 print.

ain't the holes different......

plus the 580 version doesn't have as big as a thermal pad...

and from the people i have seen that have got it...

they haven't really seen any temp difference

What does the back plate do extra for the card in an already enclosed case cooling reference card?

Can someone post the link to the EVGA website where one can order the back plate for the GTX 580?

Does this only works with the EVGA 580? Will it work with the Asus GTX 580?
