I hate to be the ****head who asks this, but why wasn't this bracket a part of the original design?

Are there really any actual benefits to this? A degree or two?

Why is it only for the 470? Is there any appreciable difference to how the bracket is mounted on a 470 vs the 480?

The high flow bracket pictured works on both the 470/480. It is also on sale directly at the EVGA store here:
http://www.evga.com/products/moreInf...M020-00-000171
For the GTX470 owners if you have registered your cards its free less shipping. It will also be made available to 480 owners in the same manner soon to those registered hope this helps.

Now all we need is for the backplate to be made avialable.

Yeah, but he'll probably just keep the original bracket in case he ever needs to RMA his card.

I'm getting this turbo floor fan along with my high flow brackets :D

Playing Left 4 Dead on 3 screens (using SoftTH) @ 5760 x 1080 had my first video card up as high as 108 degrees and that's with the fan at 100% and side case cover off :eek:

Good thing I'll be gaming with headphones :rofl lmao
