I have done it to mine, but I got an increase in temps (atleast over 100% fan speed)

So this weekend I may try adding another 80mm fan. If that fails, I will just put the old fan shroud back on and cry...

BTW, I'm using a fairly quiet 69CFM 120mm R4 fan from Cooler Master. Way quieter than the stock fan.

Edit:

I had a good gaming sessions and my temps never went beyond 50C, 35-40C drop .

And in case anyone is interested, my VRAM temps went down considerably as well using the stock pads. I don't have precise data of the previous temps but I know they're much lower now.
Awesome!

Glad I could help ;]

Because this is a good deal cheaper, and because the HDD cooler would likely be too wide.

I added another low CFM (like 16) fan and reseated the HSF again, and it maxed out at 83C in furmark. I call that a win.

Most of the time, this mod is essintally free as most people have fans lying around.

So has anyone tried this on an ATI card yet? I see it mentioned a couple times, but no results were ever posted.

Some Radeons, like the 4890, seem to run pretty damn hot. The new 5970 seems especially troublesome, especially the VRMs due to sitting right beneath the stock fan. Some downward blowing fans should definitely help to cure that.

Removed the stock fan/shroud, put some Arctic Silver 5 on the GPU, and added a high CFM Cooler Master R4 fan.

The fan is really quiet too.
