I've got a low profile 9800GT in my HTPC, and the fan in it is dying - it's making grinding noises and all that fun stuff. It was loud to begin with anyway, so I'm looking for other options before throwing another 40mm fan on it again.

So are there any decent low profile coolers out there?

The sound card is blocking the third slot.

I have a Thermalright T-Rad2 on my physx card. Stripping off the fans and fan housing made it a nice slim passive cooler, slightly larger than a single slot. Never gets higher than 60°C. However, I don't know if or where you can still buy one.

Edit: Just realized that you meant low-profile as in half-height? If so, then ignore me.
