GTX 670 Backplate

Hi there, I have the Gigabyte Windfore GTX 670 and I am looking to get a black backplate to hide the blue PCB. IIRC the windforce uses a GTX680 pcb ? Is there any where that I can buy a backplate for this card that doesn't say GTX 680 on it ?

Thanks, Dario.

Most of them say 680 in some shape or form. The ek one has it but it is not as noticeable so maybe that might look good.

That is about it that I can think of off the top of my head.

My bad didn't realise it needed a water block to be fitted. I have not seen many of them around without any form of logo for 680.

Perhaps contact your cards manufacturer to see if a regular 670 backplate would fit.

I remember reading about it somewhere before. As far as I know, there is no actual backplate made for the 670 Windforce. Your best bet would be to find someone who makes these kinds of items. I know someone on another forums who does, but don't know if that is against the rules!

I was going for the Windforce, but settled for an ASUS. Already comes with a nice backplate on it.
