How does a 280mm radiator fit but not a 140mm? Either way the larger one will most likely perform to a better level of liking for you.

what case do you have?
how many open pci slots do you have on the case backside? you can try what i did with h60 mod..strap it to the pci slots of the case so it exhausts the hot air out the case

I have a corsair 300r on the kraken website it said the x40 wouldn't fit anywhere. But it says the x60 would fit at the top. I don't mind using a x60. R9-290x gets pretty hot. And I might be able to get higher voltages.

theres more than plenty room for a 120 rad and 240 rad top.
so go with a 240mm rad for gpu/ or 120.if it was me..
id go nuts..remove both hd cages..put a 240mm rad there gpu and top a 240mm for cpu

I will just go with the x60 anyways. I can get it for the same price.

nice then.sounds like some xtreme cooling to me

Could someone let me know if these heatsinks will work for the vrm's on a R9 290X?

From this photo, it looks like I'll need 12 on the right and 3 on the left. I tried finding one of the long heatsinks for the right side that you can screw on, but have had no luck.

I would personally use these ones.

Then use this one to cover the single mosfet on the top left hand side -

If that one is to big for the single mosfet, you may need to break down and get the smaller ones you posted

I am still surprised no one has come out with a proper vrm heatsink for Hawaii cards yet. The real issue is that you need pressure applied down on the heatsink to extract the heat quicker.

Nice find on those swiftech heatsinks, those look like that'll fit that long narrow row of vrm's, thanks! I guess either of the other two will work for the 2nd vrm area.

This will work if you modify it slightly. I have one screwed down on my R9 290's VRMs. It applies excellent pressure and keeps temps low. You want the Version 1.
