[SOLVED] GPU backplate made for AIO

It's probably a dumb question or thought process but why does nobody make an AIO style backplate for the 30series cards if vram temps are a concern? I know they got water blocks and premade AIO style graphics cards but they're only cooling the heatsink part of the card. From what I've seen most backplates touch the pads so why not make a larger AIO block(backplate) that attaches to the backside of the card to cool the card as well? It seems like an easier method than having to do the whole custom water loop set up.

Not exactly sure how you would mount that. Backplates are generally somewhat unique, unlike the GPU cooler mount.

AIO blocks basically cool the GPU only, and they will have a fan for the VRMs. They don't really offer direct memory cooling, which many stock heatsinks do.

For the RTX 3090 there are doublesided blocks, but that is a new thing. The memory on the back of the card can overheat.

Generally though, all you need do is point a fan at the back of the card, backplate or no, getting airflow over that section will significantly help cool a card.
