I recently bought SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 Special Edition 8GB. I can't install it because of it's thickness, that back panel makes it top thick to put it in PCI-E x16 slot, it interferes with RAM slots, it pushes them down. Is it safe to remove that back panel?

You can remove the plate but could cause issues down the line. Just keep an eye on it and you might want to double check with sapphire that it doesn't violate warranty by removing it!
I've managed to install it successfully by cutting those RAM clips in half lol, they were too long anyway. Now it fits in perfectly.
