Thumbs up EVGA Releases Backplate for its GTX 295s

EVGA Releases Backplate for its GTX 295s



transfers heat, enhances OC stability


Just recently, EVGA has announced the availability of a 1mm thick anodized aluminum backplate for its new GTX 295 and GTX 295 Plus graphics cards.

The product, codenamed 401-EV-1234-01, will be available exclusively for the company's own GTX 295s and ultimately serves as an additional means to transfer heat from the backside of the GPU. In effect, this helps to maximize stability for an extra edge of overclocking performance. Furthermore, the product is compatible with both single card and Quad-SLI configurations and adds a sleek finish to the overall design of the dual-PCB monster card.

It is important to note that the GTX 295 was not designed to need a backplate, but since many people seem to like them, EVGA decided to make one. Therefore, it can be considered nothing more than an extra. With a retail price of just $20, the company is simply doing a very smart and respected business move by appealing to an enthusiast crowd who values aesthetic superiority and an added performance edge from their investments.

For convenience, EVGA has posted a simple three-step installation guide which requires the removal of all screws from the backside of the GTX 295 as well as removal of the retention clip located near the fan.

Due to an unseen demand for the product, however, it has currently been placed on back order within the first day of relese. However, more are expected to be available soon from EVGA's product page here.

For $500, shouldn't it come with that in the first place?

I don’t see other AIB broad partners offer this so why not…I bought one and it’s great to see EVGA do creative things like this to differentiate themselves from other board partners.

All GTX295 have the PCB exposed. So again why not? whether it should have been part of the original design....well I guess Nvidia didn’t think so.

So it’s a chose for 20 bucks. This is no different to someone getting a case window or cathodes in your case.


Hahaha BTW there sold out so I guess lots of peeps wanted on.

Heh, it's not an outrage, but it should come with it, IMO.

Especially since there is no bundled software with the evga, it would be a nice perk.

Agreed I dont think its an outrage would I have perfered it was part of the original design sure.
I do like the fact that EVGA is offering it as an option, and I bought one because I perfer it over the naked PCB.

Again you cant blame EVGA the cost of the tooling and r&d has to be recovered somehow no?

The fact that they offer it is a good idea if you think its to much dough dont buy it pretty simple.

I like it.

But will it work on a BFG GTX295?
