    Trying to offer the best service for the customer, EVGA is now offering an optional backplate (model number: 401-EV-1234-01) for its GeForce GTX 295 dual-GPU cards. Although not yet priced, this backplate is said to help EVGA GeForce GTX 295 owners to lower their overall card temperature by a few degrees.

    Word is that several NVIDIA AIC partners are planning to offer similar "optional backplates" for GTX 260 (55nm), GTX 285 and GTX 295 for retarded $10~20 prices. For now it's just a word.

    Doesn't GTX 280 have it stock? GTX 260 65nm had them too.

    It shouldnt be optional, it should be something thats already installed; such a huge card not having a backplate is somewhat unsafe.
