uhmm no dual bios switch and no backplate on new r6970 msi

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
yea guys, I bought a new msi 6970 today and after unboxing it I noticed my card didn't come with the typical 58/59xx/6xxx backplate... well..so then I also looked at next to the cf fingers in search of the famous dual bios switch and it also wasn't there frown.gif

did I got a 'semi' non-ref card or what?confused.giffrown.gif if you could give me a hand with this I'd thank you so much guys

Wait say what? This can't be right? All 6970 reference cards are supposed to come with a backplate and a dual bios.

Your absolutely right. That's...wow. Man I would send it back. MSI's website doesn't say one way or the other, but Newegg.com shows it with the backplate and a dual bios. I would be a little aggravated.
