Yea that too. If it's too heavy just shave some heatsink off. Either on the top or the sides (sides would be the best).

Idk man i like seeing a big *** HSF on a video card for looks. I got my old TI 500 (Geforce3) back from a friend and noticed when i got it back that the stock HSF was all messed up cause he didnt take care of it. I took all the heatsinks off of it, cleaned it up, and mounted an AthlonXP 1500+ HSF to it. I also put some big ram heatsinks on there and put a fan that Nubius gave me on it that runs at 8000rpms!!! Needless to say its really loud but it ONWS!
