Hey everyone. Need to get proper waterblock for this card. Is it reference or not? Any suggestions on the best type of block for this?
Thanks!

Um, not necessarily. Does your card have a white AMD logo right above the PCI connections? If so then it is reference. If it does not then it is non-reference and you would need to get a V2 waterblock for it. I am pretty sure. Might want to have someone else confirm it just in case i am wrong.

Edit: I originally said AMD logo above the PCB lol that is definitely wrong. I meant the PCI connections.

THESE THREE Sapphire HD-6970's ARE Rev.1 REFERENCE Models ...
Same Vendors as above for W/C, just Rev 1 ... plus add KOOLANCE Brand, see My post here = http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/115...l#post15572357







THESE TWO are BRAND NEW Sapphire HD-6970's Models (and not sure what WC they'll use if any yet ?) ...

You can tell if a card is reference by looking for an AMD/ATI logo near the PCI-E connector.
A second way to tell is if there an AMD/ATI stick on the fan.
A third way would be to look at the PCI-E power connectors, if they have an extra or have one less pair of pins, then it's not reference. If they are placed somewhere else, then it's also not reference.

The I/O ports in the back (aka video connectors) should also be a factor, but I'm not sure if it is as reliable as the three I mentioned above
