Backplate needed on Sapphire 480?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm taking the backplate off my card to bring to PAX to get signatures and I was wondering if I needed it for the card to function? It has adhesive on the back in a small strip and I don't have any thermal adhesive so could I just remove it or would that void my warranty. Thanks!

take it off the night before you go and buy some thermal paste at PAX/amazon and expect it to be at your house by the time your home

You don't need the backplate for the card to function afaik but it could void your warranty, not sure.
