I am looking for the best R9 280X oc aftermarket cooler.

Custom Loop watercooling? The Asus cooler is already pretty good so I would recommend keeping it and just replacing the thermal paste. 

 

Arctic Cooling MX-4 is a pretty good one

I am looking for the best R9 280x aftermarket cooler. Currently I use a asus directcu II for my cooler. It came with my R9280x oc edition and I have been looking to upgrade the cooler. Also what is a good quality thermal paste that most people would recommend.

Agreed. A custom loop would probably be then best thing. As for an aftermarket card, the Sapphire Tri-X Toxic has the best cooling capacities.

I am very uneducated on liquid cooling if there is a good tutorial out there for setup, maintenance and things like that. It would be a great help. Also thanks for recommending the thermal paste.

Arctic Cooling GPU shrouds are a ripoff, please don't buy. The Asus cooler is more than good enough
