Default GTX 680 4GB cards

hey all,

I am trying to find reference design GTX 680 4GB cards, as i have some Watercool Heatkiller GPU-X waterblocks to toss on to them. So far from searching it looks like the Galaxy GTX 680 4GB is a non-reference design, I am not sure about the Asus version and then there is the boatload of EVGA cards that all appear to be the same other than their speeds (which if they overclock good then that doesn't concern me) and varying information on if they are reference or not, then there is Zotac which well ha, I wouldn't touch their mainboards even if I was paid too.

Our GTX 680 GC 4GB is about as non-reference as it gets. The PCB layout is totally different, so unfortunately you'll need a universal waterblock of some kind to be able to install one on that card.

It's an extremely effective design as far as air cooled setups go, however. I use this exact card in my system, and I recorded a max temp of 62C with max noise level of 37dB, idle noise of 24dB in my Silverstone Raven RV-01.
