    Hello friends I have a quick question. This is the 5850 card I purchased. After reading some threads that mention reference and none reference designs, I am curious is this 5850 a reference design? would I be able to over volt if i so choose? Thank you for you time and input.

    this is the none reference card, you can see it by the cooler - the fan is on the middle of the card
    willslick says thanks.

    Yup I did it for the free game. Since I am building a powerful rig, I thought I should have a game to play.
