Ok , so I am building new PC with red and black theme with the new R9 280X . Beside the looks , I also want good performance . Because new amd cards work better when they are cool , what is best cooler from this three options and is there any difference in cooling between 2 and 3 slot ASUS cards ?

They are all about the same, the difference you will find with the 3 Slot DirectCU II card is that it is going to be noticeably quieter. This is due to the extremely big heatsink that dissipates this heat very efficiently which leads to the fans that require less work. Also a note here that the 2 slot DirectCU II card is a higher memory clock of 400mhz compared to the asus 3 slot and the msi one

Thank you very much on your answer ! For the memory clock , I will overclock my card anyway so that is not a big deal for me . I think I will go with 3 slot one because of a little less noise . Again , thank you on your help ;)  .
