EVGA GTX 580 Backplate ? Holder ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, heard there was no Backplate included with the GTX 580 from EVGA ... should I get one, is it nescessary ? ...

And does this card needs a GPU Holder (I carry my case to LAN's very often) ? or will it be fine just like this without both, only screwed to my HAF 932 ?

Not necessary at all. Some people say it drops temps by one or two degrees, but the real value is how much more awesome the card looks with the backplate on. It also catches most of the dust that would settle on the PCB, so wiping it off is easier. Purely a personal decision.

As for the holder, as long as the case isn't experiencing any shocks during transport, the PCB will hold up fine.

Aight thx The Backplate was more for "torsion" issue than for temps Rly...

But if there is no worries at all about it, then i'll just leave it like that, Tyvm

Id say get the backplate. Yeah it is 20 bucks, but it makes the card look damn good. Also you dont have to worry about anything dropping on it since you move the case around. I HIGHLY doubt your heatsink or anything else would just fall off like that but hey you never know.
