I will say the card does run good without having a back plate.Pros: Cleaner look(subjective).
Cons: Cooling, but it depends on whether thermal pads were used or not.
Ideally, pads should be sandwiched between the back plate and Vram. That way, the plate actually DOES something beyond looks.
The GDDR5/R5X on older cards - such as that 1060 - ran pretty darn cool, that pads + back plate wasn't necessary at all. Vram operating thermals were well within operating range.
Yeah it is gd GDDR5 vram.Wish i got the 6gb one though.I was just saying: because of the GDDR5 Vram on that card, it'll still run fairly cool, even if you only put a back plate on it with no pads.
You tell me NOT to use temper glass but you didn't say why.I would NOT use tempered glass as a backplate.....
I will send the glass to you faalin and you can do it for me lol.Drilling might be possible, cutting to size will be near impossible. Tempered glass is normally cut to size and any holes put in it before tempering takes place. If you do try to take this on remember to wear safety glasses, while tempered glass does shatter into small pieces it does still put out small shards of glass, also wear leather gloves or if you can get your hands on it kevlar gloves and kevlar sleeves.
I work in the automotive industry and to handle any glass (windshields are laminated, all other glass is tempered) you have to wear glasses, and kevlar gloves, sleeves, and jacket.
I mean....do you know about the properties of glass (and tempered glass)? Shattering (chipping if you're lucky)? You're going to have a terrible time cutting and drilling tempered glass. Even if you're successful, if you bend/twist the card with the backplate installed, there's a good chance the glass could shatter at that point.You tell me NOT to use temper glass but you didn't say why.
