These usually come with motherboards. ASUS calls it the Q-connector, MSI has something similar, Gigabyte and the rest likely do as well

I do still have the stock cooler but it's the AMD reference blower.

I do have an AMD GPU. I wouldn't say I have issues with tearing in most cases but it happens on occasion. IPS just seems better given that and my current monitor

Well, they do that on r/hardwareswap. It's a good subreddit

In reality, OP will probably be 100% okay. The "power hungry" AMD card only really needs high power under high loads and even then, because he only has one GPU, he will probably rarely - if ever - approach the power limit of the PSU.

That's a good idea. You could probably just buy a 5th leg for center-rear

Don't be surprised if you get a large amount of bowing in the middle. My Linnmon ended up with about 1/2-1" of indentation from starting point. Example picture is on my Instagram

That's mostly just the angle I took the photo from but it is at a slight angle due to the reservoir being mounted to it and the radiator being attached to the removable bracket of the R4. It's less secure than on other cases which is part of the reason I wouldn't recommend the R4 for watercooling, but it's fine.

I always keep water on hand. Sometimes it helps to dump a glass or two over the top of it.

I can tell you that it does. At <1080p on BF4, I was having stutter issues and frames around 50. On games like CS:GO, I get an average of 80-100. Which is ridiculously low for a 290.

Yes, I really want the HT of the i7 though, so it's just a matter of saving up. And I got the G3258 for $0 - Christmas gift.

RAM is less serious than CPU at the moment, because it's not the limiting factor, but it is something I have been looking at as well

It's solid as all hell. I'm surprised by how well it handles rendering (which I do from 720-2160p). It could definitely use the i7 to just totally destroy the renders

Yeah, I definitely notice some limiting due to the sheer horsepower of the 290, but only in CPU intensive games (BF4, etc.). In CS:GO, my frames could be better but I never dip below 80 so I can live with it until I upgrade.

Find a Best Buy and Microcenter within 25 miles of each other in the US. Call up Best Buy and say that you have access to a Microcenter but that are on summer break in (wherever you are) and would like it shipped to there for convenience.

I've heard that works, worst they can do is say no.
