I have heard great things about the ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme III, but it doesnt come with enough heatsinks. It comes with 12 but the r9 290 needs 16. I have also been looking at the Gelid Solutions ICY version. This one is compatible with the r9 290 but im not sure which one to buy.

Huge. Just wait it out for aftermarket coolers, putting your own on is a hassle and will probably void warranty, that or just buy a 780.

Gelid Solutions ICY version. i've used it on many 7970's and it does wonders.. buy an msi 290 because ir the card dies they dont mind as long as you put it back 100% how it was stock.
