Get backplate and reduce temps? say what? ooh freebie I like those. (I GOT THIS FREE) 5/19/2018 8:17:24 PM

Pros: I got it free with GFX card purchase.. in 2015..
Stiffens the GFX card by giving a metal backplate for the PCB - much like the MOBO I bought had a metal backplate to reduce temps.. AWESOME IDEA btw.. (less risk of shorting things out if its protected by backplate)

Cons: Why are these not stock items?
Seriously they should be installed as STOCK items..
People paid for it? bah should be free/stock :P

Overall Review: I really enjoyed using my GTX 970 - and Really loved my PC I built in 2015 (till mobo goes off for RMA soon)
This kind of thing should be stock on graphics cards.. especially higher end ones.
I hope my future purchase (if I ever get too afford one) has a nice backplate.

Bought wrong model 3/10/2016 2:58:55 PM

Pros: Looks cool and supposedly reduces temps by 3 degrees

Cons: $20 for something that should honestly be there with a $350 card. Seems like $15 of bogus profit for evga

Overall Review: Like an idiot bought the wrong model. I guess the 970 has two backplates available for varying models of the card. I assumed all 970's were the same size. My backplate is about a half inch short of reaching the appropriate screws.

Pros: It actually dropped temps by 6 degrees; not 3. Good job

Cons: Didn't fit my card (970 SSC ACX 2.0) 100%. 1 or 2 screw holes didn't line up. weird.

Looks good, but tricky to install 1/21/2016 3:17:06 PM

Pros: - Looks
- Reinforced structure
- cooling (maybe)

Cons: - unnecessary
- you need a smaller screwdriver to assemble it
- a little expensive for just a small piece of metal plating

Overall Review: Seems a bit excessive, I wouldn't bother unless you want a more aesthetically appealing graphics card, or you need to reinforce the structure (who knows why). Otherwise, it works exactly as intended.

It made my 970 look a lot better through my case window 12/26/2015 7:37:31 PM

Pros: I pretty much just bought this for cosmetics, as the card looks much better through my case window with the backplate on vs the naked pcb without it. It's also nice to have some passive cooling for the four VRAM chips on top also, as there is no cooling on them in the vanilla card.

Cons: This really should have come preinstalled on the card, considering the GTX 970 is not a cheap card. I also found it challenging installing the tiny nut needed for one of the screws. There is so little space to fit that nut in and it took me a while to get maybe a turn of it around the screw using tweezers, and then it was easy to just finish off the screw while holding the nut in place with the tweezers.

Works As Advertised 12/3/2015 4:44:38 AM

Pros: Looks good. Reduced GPU temperature a little bit. Got it free with the card.

Cons: Tricky to install without small tools. There is one screw in particular that you have to have tiny pliers to grip the nut behind it while tightening it and it is very awkward. This plate should have been included with the card by default like pretty much every other card on the market from other manufacturers. Especially since it was given for free with the card anyway so it's not like it's even about the money. Not a very smart decision on EVGA's part to make a delicate piece of electronic equipment "some assembly required". Had to deduct an egg for this since it is so dumb.

Overall Review: I have no idea why this wasn't already on the card when I bought it. Selling it separately makes no sense at all since it increases the risk of the customer damaging the card if they don't know what they are doing or don't have the correct tools.
