Searching for Backplate

Go to solution Solved by Oshino Shinobu,

If you're in Europe, have a look at Coldzero.eu. They can make a custom designed one for your card.

Hey Linustechtips Forum.

I got a little "Problem" at finding a backplate for my Gigabyte GTX960.

It is the small form with 2 fans on it. I am only finding Backplates for the more typical Graphics cards

and i dont know if there are even possibillities to find one for my card.Do you know where i can search for something like this ?
I think Amazon isnt the best site for it. 


Thanks in advance.

That's pretty cool actually, how is that fixed to the card?

Double sided foam, I could have used double sided tape but that wouldn't have left any gap, with the foam it leaves a small 3mm gap for airflow (it's a reference card so it has holes on the back where the fan is)

What actually is the material you used or where did you get this ?

I had leftover acrylic/plexiglass from when I had to fix an "indoor" window.

I sanded the surface with 600 grid sandpaper so that the paint would stick

Then I used black Krylon® paint for plastic (can't remember why I already had that)

 

I used a trick to paint fake carbon fiber, but it's harder to do than it looks, you can Google "diy carbon fiber paint" and you'll find tons of tutorials, they are all basically the same but it seems you need practice to get the looks some are able to achieve!
