Default GPU cooling on wall mounted pc?

Hello there!
I am planning on constructing a wall mounted gaming pc and all the planning is going just fine except for the cooling bit. As it's hanging on the wall freely out in the air I don't know how much of it I need and not even if the situation boosts the cooling or makes it worse. I'm planning on water cooling the cpu with a Corsair Hydro H110 , but am uncertain about the GPU. Will the amount of fans (two in my case as I'm using a GTX 770) be enough or do I have to water cool that aswell? If that is the case I would instead need a fully custom (and much more expensive) water loop, which really isn't preferable.

If you have any thought on the topic then please respond

Open air will keep it cooler than in a case and they're made to be ran in cases.

Or you could get a Kraken. It's an AIO for gpus.

But As P said, as long as you get air flow, you're fine.
