Default EVGA High Flow Bracket

Anyone else get there high flow brackets yet.
I've got them a few weeks back and I noticed a huge difference with my 480's in a air-cooled 800D.
The delta between the two went from 12-14 degrees to just 1 and my max temps dropped more the 10 but I'm sure thats only because of my case.

heee...High flow bracket is supose to reduce temp by like 1 degree...If the delta drop down like that and the temp went down there is probably another explaination.

High flow bracket is 5-7 degrees and the backplate is 1 degree.
That was the only thing I changed.

They charge for shipping the bracket, and the cost of the actual piece is probably less than a dollar.

I'd like to see someone take a pair of wire cutters or snips to a normal Fermi bracket and compare it to the high-flow version. Come to think of it, I might even try doing that with one of my video cards to see if it helps at all.

Already done actually...some guy on eVGA did it. He became bracket less actually, just the DVI connectors left. His temperatures improved 1 degree than the high flow bracket. Quite the lulz on eVGA forums.
