Where might I find a ATI hd 5870 without a cooler on it so I can attach a swiftech heatsink and mcw60 block to it? I think they are called reference boards. I keep searching for them and all it does is take me to more forums like overclockers net and such. I hope it isn't like buying one and then take the cooler off.
Some people just do anyway, I know a couple of people who remove every cooler regardless and reseat it themselves, sometimes lapping the coolers first. Over the top as far as im concerned but then if thats what your into then fine i guess.
