Newer AMD cards no longer require bridges. Its all through the pcie bus.

Two 280x's will run hot so you will need a case with excellent air flow. Unless you are running two monitors or plan on going 4k you don't need two cards. If just gaming at 1080p go with the 970.

The fans on my radiator are bringing in cool air. Cool air goes through my radiator and then also onto the cards. I originally had the rad on the back with exhaust but my temps all around are better with it in front.

Not really. You get used to it quite easily. Quick glance up to check temps or lean back in my chair and watch a few minutes of a hockey game during bf4 matches.

One day my friend, one day. Or you could just get a newegg preferred account.

Thanks! I'm using Silverstone Tek white cable extensions from amazon and NZXT white LED sleeved kit from Newegg.

These cards are pretty quiet even with fans at 100%. The top card tops out at 80° when plying bf4 or crysis in ultra. I'm working on some things to help with the top card breathing more but I'm fine with the hottest being 80°

It brings in cool air, not hot. So it helps with the card temps.

Watching system temps and running afterburner when gaming. Also watching shows or streaming sports while gaming. Its very convienent.

The top card does get up to about 79° when playing BF4 or Crysis in ultra but never gets any higher. As long as its below 90° I'm happy.

yeah having two of these cards plays BF4 at 140+fps. It goes well with the 144hz asus. Though I plan on going to 4k soon so thats why I got two of em. Couldnt pass up a $279 tag.

Yeah I could not pass up the $279 deal on newegg.

Yeah I read that in reviews but even when maxing out Crysis or Battlefield the top card never gets above 75 and the bottom one stays around 68. I have that fan on my drive cage to help with airflow to the top card and I've gotten good results so far.

It does what I need it for. I got it to take to school for note taking and writing papers when I'm away from home. I love it and the touch screen is an extra cherry on top.

I actually just moved it back down. Looks better that way and since I already have a fan right next to it there was minimal temperature difference (only 2°C more under load). I'd rather not hide the Asus logo on the mother board and I'd rather not have the white extension cable have so much slack.

Thanks! Its a little more difficult to get the bottom one out but then just throw the top back on with the thumb screw and then had to use some velcro for the backside to hold it up straight since its supposed to be supported by the bottom drive cage. So a little work but it looks better and let's the air flow through the bottom better.

just looked at my newegg order history and I bought it all on november 28th, 2013. And as I said I was inexperienced and my roommate picked the components for me and showed me how to put it all together. If I were to go back I would have researched more and probably got something else. Regardless, I have no regrets and am happy to play with it every day. Ill upgrade the GPU in the next year or so.

I have since moved the cpu power cable behind. When I first built this I was relatively inexperienced with building and my roomate showed me the ropes. I didnt do much research and he kinda suggested the components. I enjoy it and it runs everything perfect for what I need and it never gets above 70c.
