What fan to use with a GV-NX96T1GHP VGA?

I have a gigabyte GV-NX96T1GHP VGA coming in the mail and I hear it runs very hot due to its lack of a GPU fan. It is quite bulky and its 2 heat fin assemblies are at different heights so the "musashi twin fan VGA cooler" i was hoping to use won't really work.

If i could use a single fan I think I could get the cooling i need. Ive heard of people tying fans onto their VGA's with fishing wire and I wouldnt feel too bad doing that, but I'm not sure which fan I should use.

If anyone has heard of a cooling solution for these cards or any suggestions i could really use the help! thank you =)

Have a go at fitting a 120mm fan with cable ties. It should provide reasonable cooling even at slow speeds and be fairly quiet (with the right fan).

They're designed to be silent running, puzzled why you've bought one if you have doubts about the cooling.
