Default Sufficient Cooling For EVGA Gtx 980 Ti

Hello, I made an account to ask a question. I currently have a build on PC Part Picker and I am looking into getting a Gtx 980 Ti for this build. My Motherboard however limits the amount of case fans to 3. I have 1 180mm fan as seen below, and my case the "Raidmax Cobra Z" has 2 120mm fans. This form of the Gtx 980 Ti has two fans integrated, straight heat pipes, and cooling plates. So will this keep the GPU cool under intense loads?

Your card will be cooled fine because it's pushing the hot air completely out of your case. I would make a few suggestions though.

Get an H60 or H80i to put the heat of the processor outside of the case too. The case you're using now is pretty crap, but if it's what you want then by all means.

I also would advise against getting those Enermax fans. They push no air.
