Reference or not?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The reason i want to know if my card is a reference model or not is i want to get an aftermarket cooler for my card and i want to make sure that the cooler will fit with the chip location on my card. This is my card card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-501-_-Product. I have found 2 coolers that i believe will fit this one http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=24277 and this one http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...l?tl=g40c21s65. The position of the chip on my card is to the right (towards the power connector) which leads me to believe that the Spire cooler will fit properly because it is offset but the Thermalrights contact pad is in the center so i'm not sure if it will over hang the card too much to fit or not. Any help would be appreciated thanks

That is not a reference card. Reference would look like this...



And according to your links, neither of those coolers will fit your card.
