what you mean the Shiny metal Piece? if so that is the Cooler Retention Bracket that is sat at the Back of the GPU to make sure the Pressure exerted on the GPU itself to the Cooler is even for the best conduction of Heat into the Heat Pipes.

No need to Water cool a 3060Ti will cost about as much as the GPU to get a water-cooled set up for it and no real gains in performance.
