Cause i just saw linus techtips regarding the black and red stock cooler of R9 290 and they got some insane loudness and temperature increase.. Will this affect this card aswell?

Enhance and upgrade your cooling and airflow design.  No information given on cooling method for your cpu.  All of those HDDs add some heat.  Even ambient temperature contributes to overall performance.  Keep the gpu under 80C and cpu under 50-60C.  No problemo.

WEll, it's the gpu cooler that has to stand for the cooling lol, not me, i just got the cooler others recommended. (got recommended Gainwards phantom cooler once. DArn it was a born overheater)

That Sapphire card has anything but a stock cooler, so whatever it is that you've read almost certainly has no relevance to that card.

When it comes to heat...Everything in the case and around the  case determines the temps.  Good airflow design is paramount.  I mount an extra fan directly to the outside of the case in the gpu exhaust area to assist removal of the hottest part of the gpu exhaust.  Am also using the USAdystopia method of using the cpu cooler fans to augment the airflow across the videocards to assist cooling the cards.

The stock cooler on the 290 and 290x cards are complete garbage, as was the way with higher end cards all the way back to the HD 2900 series. But as Thanny said, that card you linked is a custom cooled version from Sapphire, which performs much better than the stock version, both thermally and acoustically.

IMO, Sapphire's new Tri-X cooling solution is one of the better ones available right now.

The Dual-X cooling was fantastic for the HD 7900 series (that's why I own one).

You won't be disappointed.
