Default Reference 470

My friend is going to be purchasing two GTX470's soon, and we were wondering where he could get a reference model so that he could get an aftermarket HS or water block without a big hassle. If I could get some help with this that would be awesome, also, we are in the US so we can order from Newegg. Thanks

Shouldn't be too hard, just look up reviews on cards and see if the reviewer uses "reference model" in the design specs or the writeup. I know Maximum PC will list their cards as reference model when they review them.

On Maximum PC I really couldn't find much for reference 470's, is there any way you could point one out?

CoolIT, FrozenCPU.com and several other site have watercooling mounts for that gpu. So check those out.

Those are three different water cooling systems for it. One being a self contained the other to link in to a system. One being a little flashy and one is just a basic water mount.
