Default Video Card Upside down

Does anyone know of a way to make the video card upside down in your case? I ask this because if you get a top of the line card that looks sweet with its brass heatsink and chrome fane. and put it in your case. all that you see is the flat green back of the card, wich kinda sucks when your trying to show off all your goods with a clear side pannel.

Is it a NIC?
Is it a Modem?
NO! its a FX 5900 Ultra.

You can also buy small copper or aluminum BGA ramsinks for vid. cards...and you can use thermal adhesive to attach them to both sides of the card.

Just run a search on google for BGA Ramsinks. Most are alum. but OCZ also makes some copper ones.
