I'd use the xt45 over EK's SE since size doesn't seem to be an issue.  Sure the enermax fans aren't as good, but the SE rads are some of the worst performing rads (even among slim rads only).  

 

xt45 with push/pull will be better than the EK SE.   The EK SE and Vardars would look better though imo and would handle a single GPU fine

 

edit: i know its a lot of data, but this site is one of the best for rad info, along with Thermalbench.com

Seriously another which rad question? This is the 3rd one I've read asking the same thing. Decide on your rad then buy fans to suit the size and fan density and ensure they have high static pressure
