    i wanna install my EK-FC680 GTX Blackplate - Black (QClass2) on my KFA2 GTX680 2gb ref. card but i am not sure about where all the thermalpads should go bcs original black/white a4 page installation u get is really bad :( (This here is my first time installing a backplate so i wanna be sure what i do so i don't damage my card ^^;)

    i am sure with the places marked with a red box, but what about the 3 places i got arrows to?

    The left most arrow is pointing to a blank area where extra caps or resistors could have been mounted. Nothing on this side needs cooling there, maybe the other side has VRM components there, I dont know. The other 2 components are surface mount tantalum caps, they aren't generating heat on their own so I'd say no pads needed on them IMO.
