lol I'm all of around 5 bucks short to qualify for free shipping on an amazon order. So I can pay 10 bucks to ship or I can get one of these basically for free. Would you put one in your build to help cool a GPU?

Already using a molex 4pin to power my Xonar Essence STX sound card so messing up the cable management isn't an issue. I checked and the loudest of the 3 is 35db which isn't an issue for me. I really can't think of any reason not to at least try one since it'll be "free."

It could help if placed underneath GPU if there's a low flow of air in that pocket. If connected alone in fan header it could be adjusted for speed as needed.

There is no fan header. It's just a 4 pin molex. So it's all on full speed all the time. If it was PWN I'd definitely try one and wouldn't be asking what people thought.
