I am not too sure. I don't think it is possible as you would want the heatsink to be in contact with your card. Unless you use a lot of thermal pads stuck together but I don't know if that will work either,

You would have to use alot of thermal Adhesiv pads to keep the heatsink on the other side Properly also you have to take into account the amount of Weight on jut that card. I would reccomend getting it Water cooled.

Even if you manage with thermal pads... the risk for a short is too big imo.

I have the Zalman for my X700 Pro. At stock speeds, I was idling at 29C, and overclocked to 510/510 I am idling at 32-ish. Load temp at stock speeds was about 34 and OC temps are closer to 40C. Either way, that is still way below the stock cooler temps.

I think you'd be happy with just one... :-)

One should be fine indeed. I have one on my X850PRO (flashed to X850XTPE with 16 pipelines), and I am not running the fan full speed (I need my rig to be quiet). It idles at 40C and load at ~58C. With stock fan at full speed (jet-engine noise), it reached >80C load. More than happy with it.
