Aren't those for screws? Like in most reference design cards? Basically, they are for OEM systems. Lets them be screwed in for more rigidity.

Sorry for the poor quality photo, but should be clear enough.

It's not a hole, it's some Nvidia overcomplication: https://i.imgur.com/GekfdlO.jpg

But at that price, it's currently a no-brainer. At least until 5600 XT is here.

When you can get a 5700XT for roughly the same price NVIDIA really need to reconsider the price.
