Default Stock x1950pro HSF or Stock x1900xt HSF?

Well I want to overclock my x1950pro 256mb as much as I can, however I do not believe the stock x1950pro HSF would provide sufficient cooling.

I used to have an x1900xt 512mb but I traded that away. Before I traded it, I replaced its stock HSF with an aftermarket HSF.

I still have the Stock HSF from the x1900xt, and I checked if it would work on my x1950pro. It will with some minor modifications.

So my question is, will the stock x1900xt hsf do better than the stock x1950pro hsf, at cooling the x1950pro?

It could possibly but I wouldn't expect anything drastic.

The x1900xt was a power-hungry, hot card, so I would assume it's cooler is not only better at cooling, but louder.
But I haven't seen either of the coolers to actually know
