Honestly NVIDIA if you are going to make end users pay 800$+ for a video card give it a backplate, for gods sake!

I look at this and think that would look nice in my case, then I think for the games I play now it wouldn't even break a sweat to run

This !!!

It would cost Nvidia maybe $1 per GPU to add a backplate, If people are adding after market EVGA Titan X backplates to their Titan X's and seeing a 1-2'c drop in temps then I do not see why Nvidia didn't add backplates to the Titan X and 980 Ti, Really makes them looks a lot neater.

If NVidia were to add backplates to their cards I hope they do better than the ones on the 980 as they were very cheap and nasty.

Even the thermal pads on the 980 are crap compared to the ones used on the Titan X.

True, I just don't understand it, I know people who have bought the Titan X EVGA metal backplates and they've put the temps down by maybe 1-2'c and helped with memory cooling so why didn't Nvidia just put them on as standard

Because it costs more money.

Yeah I know I said this above, It's roughly $1 per GPU for them, That's literally nothing.
