it seems to me that reference cards are more valuable than non ref one. why is that?
Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

because they can be easily flashed / unlocked / overclocked / underclocked / have backup bios

one advantage of non-ref can be better/quieter coolers
