EVGA also added an aluminum back plate to the card that is said to reduce temperatures by another 2C by acting like a heat sink. With the back plate and the the back panel EVGA was able to drop the cards load temperatures by 7C!
EVGA was also showing off their power supply line that is rather neat as it has an adjustable +12V power rail and cooling fan. The EVGA Classified SR-2 Power Supply takes high performance power to

That is it from EVGA! Stay tuned for more coverage from other companies!!
