I got that same one from amazon and I had same concern about the circuit board but when I got it, it was black just like the one I got from newegg. But the amazon came with a free 3dmark 11 and newegg one did not. Sign up for prime get free shipping like 2days and just unregister before the 30 days and you are all good. I love newegg but I live in cali and the sales tax kills all the deals from time to time

Color doesn't matter, that is it's not the determining factor.

I've got the two sapphire ones, and I'm the one who put that guide up. Have since unlocked 2 more sapphires for a friends rig. Haven't had a problem yet. Running mine at 950/1450 24/7 stock volts with a custom fan profile.

I was wondering, would it be the newer version of the 6950? The unlockable one? or have they not start releasing those?

AMD redesigned the pcb in dec and the revised, aka non-ref cards have been out since feb. Just make sure you get a card with the backplate and bios switch and you're golden.
