EVGA released a swanky new backplate for reference-design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 graphics cards, such as the ones it sells. The backplate fits onto the reverse side of the PCB, absorbing and radiating some of the card's heat. It also covers up components on the reverse side, making the card look better when installed. Available from EVGA's online store, this piece of brushed metal goes for US $19.99.

with a drilling machine, a little patience and an hour of labor, I could make my own.

well, I guess anyone who bought this were un-patience ones who couldn't spent an hour of their precious gaming time

edit:

wait.....
this is expensive because it has eVGA name stamped on :cool:

reverse side of the pcb under the gpu gets awufuly hot, im assuming its just like the backplate that i got for my 275, thermal pad over the back of the gpu > aluminum backplate = 1~2c better temps

Nah. This backplate is for looks only. It does nothing to cool the card at all, same with the 580 version.. which is the same version only with 580 stamped on it.

May be some of us make more than $20/hr so making our own back plate is not worth it ;)

It's so glorious!!!

I agree with Randomflip. They really need to make one for the GTX460s because those things look like the bomb diggity. I don't care if it's non-functional just as long as it looks good.

actually.... if you look here : http://www.evga.com/products/pdf/M020-00-000225.pdf

there is a thermal pad on the underside of the backplate directly over the gpu area same goes for the 480 backplate
that`s just keep it from shorting on the resistors.They do how ever protect you from slipping when taking the card out and take out some of them little resistors,I did that to one of my 4870`s and was poed ,Had to wait 4 months for it to come back :banghead::roll:

An hour of my time is worth more than $20.

Or, spend $25 shipped for a nice quality product that looks great and is perfectly designed to fit and be done with it.
It isn't even $25 shipped, eVGA offers free shipping on all their products, so it is a flat $20.:toast:

Why they don't install one or two low PRM fan on the board? That could help for radiating the heat of the graphics card.
