EK 580 Backplate on a MSI 580 Twin Frozr II

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does the EK 580 blackplate fit on a MSI 580 GTX with the Twin Frozr II cooler?

I want a backplate only for a visual purpose. Can I apply this backplate when the Twin Frozr II cooler is mounted on the PCB of the card?

No.
The EK is designed for reference, and the twin is a non-reference PCB.

Just checked at the forums at MSI and the moderator claims the MSI N580GTX Twin Frozr II uses the reference PCB.

Does this mean the backplate will fit?

If its full reference, yes.
But from reviews I have seen, it is not.

Best bet, email ek and ask.
