Default x1900xt single slot cooling??

Are there any after marker coolers for the x1900xt that will make it only take up 1 slot instead of 2. I have a asus a8r32 mvp deluxe board and i need my pcie X1 slot but the cooler blocks it.

Well on zalemans website it says both of the coolers will make the pci slot below it unusable so that doesnt work. Now for water cooling. What would be a decent one that will allow me to use my pcie x1 slot. I dont care about bringing the temps down alot. I wouldnt mind if it didnt really affect the temps at all from the stock cooling. I just need to have that slot available.

I think watercooling is the only way to get that card to take up only one slot.
