Default How can I identify which cards are built on a Reference Board design?

I am considering buying an Arctic Cooling gpu card cooler compatible with radeon 7870’s that are “ reference board” design.
“The compatibility list is based on AMD Radeon and NVIDIA's reference board layout only. ARCTIC holds no responsibility for incompatibility on non reference boards.”

I am guessing the xfx core edition might be only because it’s their lowest priced “barebones” model.

Are others that are factory oc’d with even more loud fans on reference boards?
