Do you want to water cool or not? Are you saying you don't want to build a custom loop? The Kraken g10 exists but I don't think you could fit 3 of those for tri-fire. The tri-x cards should be fine for small overclocks. The 3 cards next to each other means they will all be hotter. As long as you are fine with like 85-90 degree temps you should be fine. That is still within the safe operating temperature range.

I don't think an AIO option would work for tri-fire. The lightning cards are 2.5 slots wide, and I don't know of a motherboard where you can tri-fire those so that wouldn't work, and it is well known the tri-x is the next best thing. Go for those and you won't be upset.

Or you could quad-fire 290s and still save money and get more FPS. Tri-x 290s are cheap right now on newegg I believe.

Go with the XFX model for high res multi card Nvidia's offerings can't touch the R9 290x.
The R9 295 (x2) is coming out in a couple of days but going with individiual cards is cheaper so I'd advise the XFX R9 290X if you have the slots.

That is also a very quiet cooler a good choice.
I opt for the connectivity of the R9 295 (x2) if you want to go DP monitors later on but if you're going to keep using DVI long term the normal models will be a good choice.

A kraken g10 won't work because you need 1 g10 per card

And the tri-x is better than the XFX but costs more. I don't think it will make a huge difference either way. Honestly I would get the power cooler triple fan one. That works about as well as the tri-x for cooling but it isn't as power hungry and it looks nice.
