newbie question here, is back plate purely for aesthetics? or does it actually help dissipate heat?

From what I remember about the 465/470/480 backplates, it helped a little bit, but it's more for aesthetics. It makes for a neater, more cleaner looking video card.

From previous tests (finding source now), it added temps.
