If it says Nvidia it SHOULD be reference.



If you take a look at some non-reference cards such as the MSI 580 Lightning you'll notice it says "MSI" right above the connector.

This is an excellent example. The only odd ball I can think of is the 285 that got a revision down the road. Reference designs don't really changed. Especially on the AMD side.

which isn't a ref PCB but has all the same mounting holes and cooler and stuff
Actually, there are V2 version cards with reference PCBs. Mine is.

really?
from what I can see on newegg's picture it is not a reference PCB because right above the PCIE connector/gold traces, it doesn't say Nvidia
Reference cards always say Nvidia on the PCB

IIRC the V2 Asus cards are based on reference design BUT made by Asus
