Installed (x2)...Torx and Phillips required obviously no Temp difference from before (question folks claiming lower temps...kinda like a placebo)....look great though....makes the 580's really feel / look solid ;)

Yeah they make the card look great instead of just the bare PCB.

I like the look, if it didn't have EVGA all over it I'd probably get one for my card. I see one major problem though: your sli bridge is 1/3 empty!

I think that these backplates should be included with these high end cards.
