So my graphics card is slightly too long for my case. If i take off the fan it fits. My question is, if I unscrew the fan and keep it underneath the gpu so it fits, is that going to work or is that a no no? Is a 3rd party cooler a better idea?

when you say "underneath" as in not in contact with the GPU? go with a 3rd party cooler to be safe imo or you can always cut out some of your case to allow more space, not a fan of that option personally but it is there too.

i mean an inch or 2 underneath the gpu. Its a sapphire hd 7950. Do you know of any decent coolers that wouldnt overhang length wise?

its not going to help if it isn't actually on the card, and no sorry I don't know any good coolers, I am fairly sure liquid coolers are smaller if you have that in your system already, if not it is cheaper to just get a smaller card :p there is a cooling section to this site that might be able to help you find a new cooler, sorry I couldn't help more :(
