Might be worth noting that r290 and r290x use the same die and board so equally this applies to them for those who might not know.

On 1920x1200 with 8AA the stock GTX780 has 2372 and the 290X under air 2176.
While few days back, at 2560x1600 with 0AA, the stock GTX780 had 2298 and the 290X under air 2157!
Which means that the PNY XLR8 OC or ZOTAC AMP! GTX780s which are 10% faster than the stock 780, beat here a water cooled 290X @ 1155?
(Before someone calls me a AMD fanboy, I have a PNY GTX780 XLR8 and i7 4820K, just stating the obvious)

Keep an eye open for leaks and if it happens to spray everywhere, you'll be fine. Contrary to what many people believe, water doesn't hurt electronics as long as they're uncharged. Every time I make an upgrade to my (desktop) computers, I take out most of the parts and clean them under a faucet and just wait a day or 2 for them to dry off. Its cheaper and sometimes more effective than air cleaners, and makes the stuff look like new when you're done.
