I snagged a pair of Sapphire r9 290x cards on Newegg last week (got really lucky) -- they just arrived in the mail today. Woohoo! I'm having a tough time finding the water blocks though. Out of stock everywhere (both Koolance and EK brands). I checked all the resellers listed on the Koolance website. No dice. (backorder/ETA is 12/27/13 through Koolance).
