Question is in the title. Is there any particular description? Model Number? Markings?

If the PCB looks like that on the back, it's a reference design.

Look at a picture of the reference GTX 460 and a picture of the card you're interested in and compare. The coolers will be the same. Sometimes, even if the coolers look similar there can be different stuff under the hood, but that's the first thing I'd look for.

Other poster said something better to look at the back of the PCB.

I'm just trying to be sure. Because the card I recently bought is what I assumed to be the reference card due to the box saying built and designed by nVidia. I just wanted to be sure thats all. Dumb question. As you were. lol.

That's an actual nVidia card, and they are all reference designs.

Thats what I figured. Asking because I will be a first time water cooler and just making sure I get the right water blocks.
