    Beautiful!

    Simply beautiful, I want one immadetely with the backplate as well!!!! Any estimate on the price?

    Actually my local vendor sent out queries regarding what if EK starts to sell big blocks (GTX590/HD6990) with backplates bundled to the block for a little extra price (definitely cheaper than separately).

    I think it's a very good idea and tis silver backplate is simply amazing!

    You know what I'd love to see EK make? Single slot PCI-E brackets for watercooled cards. Cant be that hard can it?

    the backplate is sexy!

    However, I'm not sure I'm a fan of the 79 screws on the block. I'm guessing we'll see plexiglass/nickel models sometime soon?

    I know it's not the good place to talk about this, but things have changed with the 6xxx serie and Tri-Fire.

    Just for fun, go see those slides. It's really interesting.

    Crysis 2560X1600, 8AA, 6990+6970: 59 fps, 580 SLI, 32 fps. DOUBLE the framerate for the same price. 1000$ against 1000$, 2 cards against 2 cards.

    Metro 2033. Same results. 6990+6970 dominating 580 SLI. Same price. Early 6990 drivers.

    Stalker COP. Same results. 6990+6970 again dominating 580 SLI. Same price. Early 6990 drivers.

    Damn! I need that EK-6990 for my card!

    But the backplate should not touch the pcb... mine does't touch the 580.

    All newer backplates, launched after EK-FC580 GTX Backplate do their job at passive cooling. The backplate touches the VRM and also MEM chips

    @knet: It's heavy, but not *that* heavy

    ETA 10-15 days tops.

    We'll consider making single slot bracket!

    Now that's a good idea

    Would you consider releasing brackets with the "L" shaped supports that hold the PCB? (like the original ones have)

    Another manufacturer makes single slot brackets for some GPUs but they rely just on the DVI port bolts to hold the card, I've never been happy with this so I end up hacking the original brackets to make them single slot...
