In my opinion it's not worth the effort. I would save your money for something else. Here's why, The added cooling, If any at all, won't be that much more. You risk the chance of messing up your video card. I found out the hard way that it only takes one mistake and your card is dead. If you do decide to do this then make sure you know what your doing before you start. But as I said, It's really not worth the effort. You won't see much more cooling and you risk killing your card.

I have a globalwin s7 heatsink takes 2 pci slots so the serial and usb headers are under the agp and the rest of my cards take all the lower slots.
