Default VGA cooler for the 7950 GX2??

Hi, Summer is coming to Spain, and its often 40c+ sooo i want a decent vga cooler if possible, however my card is a pain in the butt. Its all packed so tightly together so im not sure what would fit! I dont want to spend loads on water cooling etc, so im stuck with air cooling. Im not even sure if any coolers r made for my card lol

Look at one of these two:

Zalman -

Thermalright -
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835109134

They should fit AFAIK.

Thanks but wont fit both the cards...only the one on the outer edge the one on the bottom will still have the stock.

For air cooling, only the one facing out will get a better cooler. The one sandwiched between will be forced to use the stock cooler.

The only other option is the spacer extensions that Ownage posted.

Such a simple yet clever idea lol only prob is itll take up more room...think what ill do is wait and see how bad it gets in summer. Then ill prob invest in one and some fans thanks guys.
