What low profile CPU cooler should I use for i7 6800k?

I have been considering the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B Low Profile CPU Cooler!

Do you think this would be sufficient to cool an i7 6800k at stock frequencies i.e. no overclock?

I am building a top of the range Gaming HTPC and using a silverstone grandia GD09B case.

System Specs:

MTB = MSI XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM X99

SSD = 800GB Intel 750 Series PCIe 3.0 x4

PSU = 650W Corsair RM650x Series 80 PLUS Gold Full Modular

GPU = 6GB MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti

RAM = 32GB (8x4GB) Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX PC4-25600 (3200) Non-ECC Unbuffered

CPU = Intel Core i7 6800K, S 2011-3, Broadwell-E, Six Core, 12 Thead, 3.4GHz

OS = Microsoft Windows 10 Professional, 64-bit

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Best regards Sean O'Brien

You case looks spacious enough. Why use a low profile cooler? It may heat up the components around the CPU.
