I mean, is it even worth it? will it still affect temp that much or stay the same, Im gonna have this inno3D GT1030 next days and its 0db fanless im thinking if its possible if i swap a common GT series heatsink (small heatsink with small fan) to it. Im hoping that it woulf be more effective or if not its ok.

GT1030 is a very low power chip. 30w.
No fancy cooling is needed.
What is the prospective case?
Even a case with convective airflow should be ok.
Unfortunately an SFF (Optiplex 380)
But you mentioned the watts now it makes sense, i guess swapping doesnt do much, ill just rely on the extra pc fan to cool a bit of heat

Just made me curious cuz i saw the Inno3D GT1030 has an available 2 pin fan connector under that pure chunky heatsink
