    It comes with little plastic dowels that separate the back plate to the GPU. It only appears to work with the GPU water block...
    Yes - screws were included.
    I don't understand what you mean about "used with stock fans".

    He wants to see if he can add a backplate to a GPU with the stock cooler on it. I am not 100% sure if they are all compatible with stock coolers, it may vary model to model. The EVGA backplates or example fit the EVGA cards they're designed for with the stock cooler still attached for sure (look at some of their higher-overclocked models and they come with one pre-attached out of the box).

    Bottom line, the exact model numbers (much more complicated than any 7970) can only work with specific backplates. Do your due diligence in ensuring you're purchasing a backplate for your specific model.

    And yes, they come with everything you need to safely attach them, save for maybe a screwdriver.

    Rearranged the fittings on the 7970 in the loop of one of my FX-8350 rigs....

    Also added in a piece of clear tubing so I could keep an eye on the coolant quality (100% distilled H2O atm) ;)

    Stopping at 240 leaves you with a rougher surface than if you hadn't bothered at all. The only difference is that if the IHS was convex or concave, you've now rectified that.
    For practice, it's fine, but if you were to actually do that with your 8350, you'd want to finish the job.

    LED light from phone, high ISO, fast shutter. Managed to catch it.

    ..also, this isn't high resolution, but it is close up and about 240 FPS:

    Slightly higher quality version

    Cool picture. I have one of those bays and it never did anything cool like that.

    Nice try. Rainbow cable.
