Default BFG GTX 260 Maxcore OC REV-B1 no backplate?

Hi,

1. Just wanted to ask you guys if its normal for GTX 260 216 to come without a backplate? Can't provide a photo right now as I am at work. Also there are no RAM chips on the the back of the card and it feels a little lighter than my older GTX 260 192. As per GPU-Z the card is in fact BFG 260 Maxcore OC (216) with correct clocks.
2. Revision of the card is B1 so I assume it is 55nm but it runs kinda hot on idle 49C fan @ 40% and 80C full load. My old GTX 260 192 idled at around 46C. Could this relate to poor heat sink placement by BFG?

Will try to provide GPU-Z screenshot and a photo of the card when I get home.

Cheers and thanks for your input!

Thats correct, the new 55nm cards do not have memory on the back or a backplate.

Thanks for confirming that!!!
So far I am not happy with my GTX 260 55nm part as it keeps crashing (BSOD) on almost all the games I play and overheating : (
I already tried all the driver versions but no cigar.
