Hey there guys wanted to ask a question.

I bought this cooler especially to just cool off my GPU a little

gpu is Sapphire Radeon 7950 , when playing black ops 2 everything on highest temps are 65c so I thought I would get this cooler
Code:

to cool it off a little , okay so everything is just fine however I also have a Asus Xonar DX soundcard which is connected to another slot so the xonar card is now getting most of the cool off..

I was thinking of buying some sort of card to give me extra slot because the GPU is too big for the cooler to fit just below under it I need like 2 slots but the xonar card fits ok.

I was thinking something like this.

Now it is like that:

GPU
Soundcard
Cooler

I want.

GPU Slot 1
Cooler Slot 2
Soundcard Slot 3


This is my motherboard:

The thing that is scaring me more is my cpu it sometimes goes close to 70c
I thought that would be because the card is putting more stress on CPU.

Core i7 1366 LGA 2.8 ghz 930 series

I will be buying soon this CPU Cooler hope it will do the job fine.

of course I am buying it somewhere else to almost half the price lol.

Thank for your any input :)

the thing is that the plastic is fat enoguh I would need space in 2 slots for this to work, I was thinking of a PCI Riser? what is your opinion on that?
