Hopefully i will be getting one of these
is there any way to get a backplate for this card , a bit shame 850£ card to come without backplate

My other question would be would be is there a bios with higher clocks / power limit like the ultra version or ftw , after making sure that the card reaches those clocks manually before flashing

    I'd love for EVGA to make available parts like fans / backplates / fan shrouds.

    As for bios and power limits, no.  All of the XC3 cards are limited to ~360w peak
    FTWs are limited to 450w peak.  Nothing short of physical modifications change that while voiding warranty.  For best performance, work on keeping the core as cool as possible.

    I would really like a 3080 XC3 Black, especially without the backplate, as I have an extremely squeezed build! Where did you pick yours up in the UK?

    backplate shouldnt make it much thicker just pretties without all the electronics on top

    I can tell you that a the EK back plates for FTW3 fit my 3090 stock cooler.
     
    Would be a risk but you could buy the xc3 backplate from EK:  slightly worse gpu temps for probably significantly cooler VRAM temps.

    There is no VRAM on the back of the 3080, so it likely won’t have any affect on overall temperatures.

    Gddr6x is flip chip. Meaning the Vram "die" is closer to the PCB than it is to the black substrate of the "chip" 
    "Significant" probably means different things to different people but folks are switching out thermal pads on 3080 backplates for a reason. 

    OP- Its not worth doing unless you know what you are doing.

    We do not sell individual back plates. Companies like V1 Tech do make some cool looking ones though.

    Not everyone is in the usa , share the template then so we print it ourselves , i thought cards without backplates were a thing from the gtx 9xx series

    We do not have a general template to provide.

    Coldzero can probably make one BUT he would need measurements
