    Reference design

    How do I find out if my card is reference design? This is the one I'm talking about. Need to get a waterblock for it so I want to make sure I got the right one. (hate RMA!)

    It is a reference card. You are good to go. Non-reference cards are usually ones with aftermarket coolers on them already from the factory or a totally redesigned pcb and cooling solution.
    CPU: Intel Core i7 920 @ 4.347 ghz (207x21) @ 1.41v
    Cooling: Thermalright 120 Ultra Extreme push/pull

    Graphics: 2x HIS HD4890 @ 1010c/1010m
    mobo: Gigibyte EX58-UD3R F6
    Case: Beastly huge HAF 932
    PSU: Corsair TX750w
    HDD: 80g WD and a 500g Barracuda

    I think that even that one is too, just with a different cooler. They are still relatively new. The first aftermarket cooler is just about to come out Late March early April.
