Default Thinking about VGA cooling

I only have room for 3 fans in my case.

Thinking about getting this VGA cooler, would it be a good idea?

for the most part, any after market cooler is better and quieter than the one that comes on the card. so as long as it compatible with your card and looks nice, go for it.

but, unless you are wanting to overclock your graphics card, its a wasted effort, the factory one does the job.

Yes, the factory cooler will work, but a wasted effort??? It's never a wasted effort if your wanting to overclock..
