What I'm suspecting is different revisions, since from taking a look at the pny 465s the black pcb are unlockable to 470s yet the blue ones aren't.

....or maybe that gigabyte just ran out of black pcbs and I'm overthinking redface.gif

If you ask me, they send out the blue pcbs for reviews, marketing, then they sell the black ones cuz it's cheaper.
