    Unfortunately, according to the review at Anandtech, they say it's a custom PCB.

    I'm having trouble finding any info on that model. That looks a bit like the reference cooler, but I can't say for sure. Perhaps someone with a bit more knowledge of nVidia cards could weigh in?

    Here's a PCB shot according to EKWB:

    ...and I think this is the reference 770:

    There are such things as universal gpu blocks. They just cool the gpu core, and you will need to get other heatsinks for the memory and vrm.

    FYI, EKWB is WRONG about the PCB for this particular card.
    The screenshot above is from the "Twin Frozer" version of the n770 2gd5/oc
    Specifically:

    N770 TF 2GD5/OC <- the circuit board that EKWB shows, and the card Anand reviewed.
    N770 2GD5/OC <- the reference card that this poster is discussing.

    Proof? I took mine apart and took pictures.

    Edit: I'd also like to report that I DID notify EKWB of this and they just ignored me. Typical EK. So I'm going to buy Aquacomputer blocks insead. Not sorry about it either. Every interaction I've had with EK has been poor.

    Edit2: on James' comment - because this card is reference it has a heatspreader over the ram/memory, so you would only need the core block. No additional heatsinks are necessary.
