Change the GPU to a non dcuii version. The DCUII cooler on AMD wasn't modified from the nvidia version, and as a result several heatpipes don't come into contact with the gpu die, making it warmer than the competition.

Pick up a motherboard without wireless and get a wireless card separately.

Better? I added the R9 290. What Wifi card with bluetooth would you recomend? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/CJ67/saved/Z3mFf7
