Air Cooling. I'm always swapping parts and that makes water cooling a major pain.

Looking good so far . Any reason why you chose 2x280's over a 295?

I already have the GTX280's. Plus I'm not a fan of dual gpu cards. I had a couple 7950GX2's a few years ago. They ran hotter than a single gpu, I had less cooling options and the driver support always seemed to be geared towards the dual gpu last.

Things have a changed a bit since then, im gonna reapply the tim on my 295 to drop temps some.

Looks like its gonna be a solid build though.
