the cooler already comes with noctua, so you are making the OP spend 7 bucks on the mx4 which he can use towards getting a better GPU, maybe another 980ti.....

lol just kidding! :)

what about this model?

good point. the reference card is better for this case. the acx will dump heat all over the included psu and there isn't much volume in the case. having the gpu exhaust out the back is best.
