5 out of 5 eggsGreat backplate

Pros: Finishes the look of the video card, supposedly removes heat. Mine had some thermal pads by the Gpu.

Cons: Not as sturdy as I thought it would be, only connects to the bracket with 1 bolt.
Seen some evidence that backplates dont do anything and can actually hinder cooling of the back of the GPU

Other Thoughts: Nicely put together kit, but they might want to mention to leave the plastic sheeting on the inside intact to protect some components from shorting

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Looks nice
- Keeps the card firm, sturdy, and prevents PCB bending
- Keeps the card 1C cooler at idle temperature, but 5-7 hotter at maximum load temperature
- Doesn't burn the card up too much at maximum load

Cons: - Reduces maximum overclock
- Increases maximum load heat by good 5-7C

Please do not be fooled the advertisement of reducing temps. This backplates insulates the videocard, which increases heavy load temperatures by a significant amount. The thermal tape that transfers heat from the card to the backplate is found only around the GPU, which still ends up running hotter than without the plate. There is no more thermal tape to transfer heat from the PCB to the backplate. That means that VRAM and VRM chips end up running hotter as the card on the backside insulates the PCB and doesn't transfer heat in those areas. In addition to that, the possible heat that is transferred from the GPU to the backplate via thermal tape further increases backplate temperature, making it even a better insulator!

Other Thoughts: I don't know who EVGA pays to design their backplates, but anyone with a common sense would know that such backplates would increase total PCB temperature, UNLESS there was heat transfer through thermal tape, which barely exists on these backplates... You don't have to be an experienced engineer to figure out things like that. If ONLY EVGA included way more thermal tape, there may have been a temperature reduction instead of an increase.

My advice - buy this backplate ONLY with additional thermal tape, at least 2mm thick, but 3mm thick would be better.

5 out of 5 eggsAesthetically pleasing and functional too!

Pros: It is a shame it's not included with the card, but for me it was worth it. Adds significant class to the look of the card. Lowered my temps perhaps 1 or 2 C at load. I mostly bought this for the aesthetics. Looks great through a case window. Comes with good installation instructions and screws. Highly recommended. EVGA delivers again.

Cons: Didn't come with card.

5 out of 5 eggsThe perfect touch

Pros: - makes the card look so much better by covering the top and completes the look of the card. Looks amazing in my case

- helps extract the heat faster from the back of the card. The backplate absorbs the heat from the back of the card and helps with cooling. The plate gets pretty hot to the touch but is normal

- helps reinforce the card and makes it very sturdy

- extremely easy and quick to install

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: I personally think these are an absolute must for these cards and wish they came with them. But at least they do not cost that much. Unfortunately I did not purchase this backplate from Newegg because they did not sell them at the time when I got mine and got i directly from the manufacturer's website (EVGA) for only $19.99. I have 2 of the exact same EVGA 780 ti SC's with the ACX coolers both with the backplates and it looks awesome. Also have some Corsair Dominator Platinum memory and it matches the cards perfectly
