Quick question, the red corsair sleeved cables do work with the older HX series psus correct? Their page says it does but I want to make sure. The only problem, which is very very very minor but my OCD says its a problem is the blue of the PSU in a red theme ... I can't help it.

Oh, and I'm seeing the October 15th for the 290x release date, but non reference coolers would take long to come out and I don't know how long I want to wait for my GPU.... BUT; if the card is that much of a monster I'd be willing to do so. Time will tell I guess.

You have to get the correct cables for your psu or you could blow it if your psu is a series 1 then you must get the cables to match, I went through all those issues recently but Corsair themselves helped me track some down so if you have trouble finding them just talk to Grey_beard on these forums and he will help you

Stock coolers won't be bad. It seems like they are going the Titan Style stock cooler route but in their own version. Besides with all that power at 1080p the card will rarely hit 100% usage, so noise will be less of an issue. That is if i am correct(which most likely not but oh well).

So the PSU I totally forgot, the HX 850 I currently have is only Semi Modular, the 24pin cable is attached to the unit, hence why I couldn't find the 24pin cable that was compatible with the HX series. Problematic.

Still on the fence with the GPU but I'm leaning towards using the 5870 until the 290x release.

Decided on the MSI GD65 over the Gigabyte UD4H (thanks for that recommendation guys it looks awesome)

Feronix mentioned 5 7 volt adapters for the H100i fans to hook them directly into the PSU. What did he mean by that?

Lastly, the front bracket for the H100i heatplate Tom mentioned being sanded down and painted. Any details on that? Mostly paint type and such. Or is that a bad idea?

PSU: Just buy bitfenix alchemy cables if you are really concerned.

GPU: Wait for the 290x release

Motherboard: Both are solid choices. Either is great!

5/7volt adapters: He means you get 5 or 7 volt reducers.. you hook them up to the end of the fan cable and then the other end to a molex spiltter, something like this... Link

Lastly: Don't worry about it. Leave it how it is.

So I purchased all my stuff but the GPU; it'll be here tomorrow... but now that the 290x is $700+ I'm feeling that the 780 is a better buy esp. with the leaked benchies for the 290x.

Drivers are not out for the 290x.. Just wait and it's less than 700$ as far as i know.
