Gigabyte radeon 5870 backplate

Hello, My gigabyte radeon 5870 overclocked card is cool but one side is bareback with no extender/brace. Is there any such hardware?

  1. It depends on what you mean by "one side".
    The side opposite the fan/heat sync?
    The side that has the connectors out to the monitor?
    The opposide side of the connectors?

    Please give more detail in your question.

    On my computer it's the side facing up opposite the fan side of course. Which side do most nuts put stiffeners on? The side that all the components tails are showing up?
  3. The 5870 and I believe the 5970 as well come with backplates so the chip is totally enclosed. The 5850 and lower however do not have the backplate.
