    Just wanted to share some quick pics. It's a nicely designed add-on. Enjoy..

    The plate arrives in a bubble pouch, wrapped in cling film. Also included is a color installation page and bag of screws which will replace eight specific ones removed from pcb:

    The backplate has a nice brushed finish, quality standoffs, little spacer bumps, and a good size thermal pad. The pad is soft and will gently engulf a sizeable area behind the GPU, wicking away a bit of heat and spreading it across the backplate. Temp drop is very minor; but it's nice to know the backplate has some functionality:

    A trick to removing the foam strip.. point a hair dryer at it for a minute or two. Then peel an end away, insuring the adhesive is coming off with the strip. Afterwards, simply follow installation instructions. In a few minutes ur done. Here are mine.. :)

    That looks very nice, much nicer than the bare PCB! :toast:
