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.

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.
