less noise . . more heat! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

Aesthetics I would imagine. I mean, sure it doesn't do anything for thermals (which to be fair is supposed to be the point of a backplate) but most of the metal backplates really don't do anything for thermals either. I dunno, I'd always prefer the back of the PCB to be covered by anything that doesn't look like the back of a PCB, just for looks personally. Kinda like the plastic "Thermal Shielding" on Asus mobos. They don't do anything for performance (and sometimes make thermals worse), but I still love the clean look and design of them anyway. I still have the very first board to use the thermal shielding (P67 Sabertooth) and I can say without shame that that was the main reason I chose that board back in the day.

I know, I know, flame away guys, but I've always been completely forthcoming about my penchant for aesthetics (even empty aesthetics) and its the same reason I love RGB and tempered glass side panels and all the other "silly" decorations PC's have these days.

"I can assure you this is plastic"




Probably extra rigidity, but it's a dumb idea because it traps heat.

yeah like every motherboard shrouds to ever exist, did it ever occur to them that it traps heat?

Not until it starts melting and people start to RMA the products in mass.

Roundup review :

idle noise has dropped for EVGA and STRIX cards , so maybe fan stop has been implemented.


Every single card seems to be using Micron memory other than FE.
