The EVGA logo towards the middle of the plate.

I've just done the same thing to my plate for my Asus.

Yeah they definitely lower to the temps, the airflow bracket that is. My 470 is a newer release so thank fully its already installed. I'd say about 4-5 degrees c.

Both backplate and high flow bracket can be purchased directly from EVGA.

What would happen if you were to install this backplate on a non-reference PCB ? Could you go without screwing in the screws that wouldnt fit and not damage the card, or would you have to drill out new holes that fit, or could it not be done ? Also, slightly off topic, can you install the EK backplate without using their water block? The above questions also apply to the EK backplate.

it depends on where that particular manufacturer placed the outputs i suppose

Cigarette and Rizla? Interesting.

I am definitely buying one of these, purely for aesthetics.
