    Either the manufacturers have stopped making the standard versions or ocuk has not bothered to reorder.

    I'm wondering where the hell the cheaper brands going if none of the retailers have had them for months? :confused:

    The reference ones were only ever going to be around for a limited time. The various GPU vendors all add their own touches to the ones they sell; the only reason there were reference ones at launch, was because they hadn't had time to tweak their designs at that point.
