apseseWhats the point of metal backplate? Seems like the backplate could actually make things run hotter. Are there tests that confirm this? If it just for the looks...
sparetimepcBackplates have some thermal pads between them and the PCB and are used for looks as well as heat transfer
apseseI would argue that it restricts airflow. Also if it were so good at conducting there wouldn't be cutouts on some elements...
GTXJackBauerBackplate can decrease a few degrees while supporting the GPU from further sag.
ty_ger07GTXJackBauerBackplate can decrease a few degrees while supporting the GPU from further sag.Famously, they can also increase temperatures a few degrees. It really depends on the product and execution.
veganfanaticFront intake and rear/top exhaust fans can do wonders for thermal management.
aka_STEVE_bHave the reviews overall really showed this to be true & good ? The early ones I saw weren't to impressed by the card.... but who knows.
stevenguy For someone like me just doing 1080p 60Hz V-sync'd casual gaming every couple weeks, I think it'll work out.
stevenguyCouple of days ago VideoCardz put out an article called "Some EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KOs ship with Turing TU104 GPU, not TU106." Then it goes on to talk about how GN and TechPowerUp both found TU104 dies in their cards. They don't talk about 106's being found anywhere, though. So are there 106 variants of the KO boards mixed in with the 104's? That just seems weird to me, but I'm not well versed in any of this stuff.
