i just bought accelero x2 and i found my accelero doesn't have transparant plastic cover at the back side of it, which i saw accelero x2 does have it base on wizzard's review ( he said that it prevent the card from short circuit).

am i missing something ?

i haven't install it on my x1800 yet :(

Looking at the back of mine right now.. is the thermal paste covered by something plastic? That's all that should be covered. Otherwise, should be bare metal. Watch out with those sticky thermal pads.. they stick so well, you may not be able to get your Accelero off your card. Yeah.. not much fun.
