    If you don't want to read much,please just read the BOLD.


    I am looking for a cooler that can be used on my Asus DirectCU GTX460 1gb.

    i bought this one used on the forums and the fan had been removed due to being damaged(i knew that before i bought it).
    Is this card a reference PCB? This is what I'm not sure of,I'm also asking so i know what i need to look out for when it comes time to shop for a waterblock for the GPU,

    I know i can find a replacement fan for ~$12 shipped on ebay for this card and i may consider it but I would like to know my options first.

    If you know of something that will cool this card nicely, but not make it more then a dual slot card then let me know. I can't have it take up more then the slot right below the card as i plan to run 2 more of these cards soon for folding/crunching.

    Also i wouldn't mind a cooler or waterblock that can be used on multiple cards so i can use it when i upgrade also.
    Thanks :toast:

    I can tell you that the ASUS DirectCU GTX460 does not use a reference PCB. However, it does have the reference mounting holes around the GPU.
