Default XFX Radeon HD 5670 HD567XZNF3 uses a reference design?

Graphic Cards - ATI Radeon HD 5000 - ATI Radeon

Does anyone here know if this card uses a reference design? I need to know so that I can go and get the appropriate aftermarket heatsink to silence this card. This is also the cheapest card that I can find, which supports Eyefinity. I don't intend to do any gaming, but rather just power three Dell U2211Hs for work. If anyone know of any other cheap Radeon card which supports Eyefinity and uses a reference design, then please let me know if this one doesn't fit the bill.

I don`t know but if you are just working powering 3 monitors it really shouldn`t be all that loud. Also you can just buy a noise reduction kit that should be cheaper than aftermarket cooling (which isn`t always all that quiet).

This little card is decent. I bought one for my dad's rig.
He's got a i5 760 stock and this card and 3Dmarks06 gives a 11 000 pts score...the sound wasn't bad AFAIK...

I don't think it'll be that expensive to slap a passive heatsink on it if this card uses a reference design.
