You can't actually put a fan infront of the video card because the intake for the CPU cooling is there. So the hot air from the CPU go right into the video card. Unless there is few possible config the only way to add a fan is to let it hang under the HDD.
This has nothing to do with video card fans being noisy.
Also his rig has a liquid cooler with a 120.1 rad mounted on the 'roof' of the case. This 'identical' rig that you speak of is completely different.
