It's clear, exactly like the one that I had last month from PNY except it has a ainward sticker. Yes it was advertised as the retail card including a sound card, etc. you know the package. Anyways I knew they didn't know crap when I ordered it, I wasn't even sure it was an Ultra cause I called them and they didn't know what the hell I was talking about. Anyways PCClub and GameVE.com were selling the OEM Gainward with the regular reference fan. The Gameve.com comes with 4x4 EVO and some game lite disc, drivers/expert tool dvi adapter and a svid to rca plug. I only wanted the Gainward for the copper on it. Would have been easy to mod. However I'm just going to mod these.
Xtreme Gear is advertising one now.
There are 2 fans that should fit exactly where the ystech is depending on the speed/cfm/db that you want.
