It's basically the standard heatsink/cooler/card layout. Reference is the original version made by ATi/Nvidia that the other cards are based off of. A lot of cards stray from that layout though. Reference models tend to be easier to find aftermarket coolers and what not for, and are just more mainstream. I pretty much always go with a reference model card myself.
