Got my backplates in today from EVGA, they are $20 each so the cost isn't too bad and they have pads on the back of them so they actually assist with memory cooling. I touched the back of them after a gaming session and they did get pretty toasty so that tells me they are working. Just make sure you have good circulation in the case to keep air flowing over them to remove the heat build up. My system still needs additional fans for optimal cooling. Here's some pics:

So much agreed, these backplates just add that extra awesome! I was surprised though at how hot to touch they were overall after so many supposedly saying the memory would generate negligible heat. My babies below :P

Yeah it looks like they help in cooling as long as you got air running over them.

Does it really help your temp? I'm on air not water.

First reports I've heard of backplates assisting with cooling. Now to cover them in spiky heatsinks from radio shack and point a 200CFM fan at them. What do you mean looks will be ruined, THEY HELP THE COOLING!!!

Lol I have two case fans running air over them so that's enough.

Looks great! Any chance of lower temp? (even at least by 1C?)

There's no memory temp sensor so its hard to say. Could take a laser temp gun to it I suppose but it still wouldn't really tell me if its running cooler or not.

I see. Well.. at least temp isn't higher with backplate. And it looks nice. Good enough for me. Heh :D

Do the backplates really assist with memory overclocking? My titan is sitting at +550 (not tested higher) without any troubles without a backplate.

I wouldn't think that it affects it much if at all, but I haven't done any testing since I tried the first Naennon BIOS, I might go back and capture temps again.

This reminds me that I should finally mount that backplate which laying around here... lol, just too lazy.

I don't think the difference is something which will affect the overclockability, but the backplate sure does look nice. Something like this should definitely be included by default with such a premium product. With that price Nvidia should provide a gilded backplate :D

I've got 2 on my titans. They REALLY look nice. My only problem is I buy them, then decide I want to WC them lol, I guess it's no big deal at $20 each though. I got the Razer blocks... nice!

Supposedly they are offering free back plates for the 770s. And via email a rep told me that even though the titan ones are compatible with the 780s they are specifically making new ones for them. I wonder if they will offer those free as well.

I had two titans but got rid of them for the cheaper 780 acx models...I did order a backplate for the 780 and its basically identical.

I feel like adding a back plate would reduce the amount of direct air blowing on the memory (for the titan). I would think the ram would get hotter. Has anyone done tests?

I should probably get a backplate for my 780 SC ACX too, sad that it was not included with card though.

      I got a msi ge60 2pf Apache pro & its specs :
       
      Processor-i7 4710MQ
      Ram-16GB 
      VGA- GTX 860M 2GB Maxwell 
       
      Could anyone tell me the best overclock that I could use on this GPU?
      Please keep in mind that the voltage cannot be changed as this is a laptop
       
      Thank you

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.
