I used them on my 1070 and they were not going anywhere.

The Morpheus II is already big and heavy as it is (without the fans) and you ideally would want a GPU support bracket installed along side it.
The VRM and vram heatsinks are useless most of the time and I doubt it would be any different with this model. Not that they fall off or anything (thermal tape sticks well enough if you clean surfaces properly). If you are changing your cooler this way you may as well get some copper heatsinks.
Many of the better aftermarket heatsinks on top end cards (and these days even on some low high end and top mid tier cards) are already rather beefy. Only the fans are crap, but nothing stops you from changing them to full size case fans.
Maybe they could've kept the same length and increased the width so there would be more area in the finstack to dissipate heat. Or maybe they could've copied the prolimatech MK-26 design and just increased the finstack area by making it as long as the Morpheus II.
