Aftermarket GPU Cooling

So I broke one of my fan blades on my GTX670 somehow (maybe when i rage punched my video card?) And now it makes a god awful vibration/loud noise. Instead of upgrading to a new card right now I was thinking about chucking on some kind of cooler. I've been looking and found the Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme III VGA Cooler...

Has anybody used anything like this? Seems to be reasonably priced, $70-80 from umart. Most reviews seem good. Just everywhere I look is out of stock :dev: :dev:

should fit, will be iffy with what 670 it is tho, some are reference 670 boards (shorter lengthwise etc) while others are gtx680 size (like my gigabyte)

When my fan wore out on my old 580, I just took the casing off the heatsink, and strapped a couple of 120mm fans to it with zip ties.

Honest to god I saw barely any difference in temps, and it was actually quieter. ??? Case temps got higher, though, obv. but I was WC'ing my CPU at the time so no care.
