This is a new card on the market (can't find it online for sale yet). It's fairly low-end, but can run up to four DVI monitors out of the box:

I think I may try it for my setup that will have three (or heck, maybe four) monitors. One thing, though, is that ugly little fan, which I suspect will be noisy. Looks like the card has two four-hole heatsink attachment patterns. Is this some type of standard, which might take a generic aftermarket heatsink/fan?

I know that I'm not answering your question and apologize. But:

- Your problem would not exist if you would be happy with 3 monitors or less as ASUS and Gigabyte make fanless versions of the GT 520.
- By the time you buy this card and a quiet cooling solution you could buy 2 cards.

I think it is a standard pattern, but don't quote me on that.
The Arctic Accelero S1 list some low range models from nVdia, maybe it'll fit. You could contact Overclockersclub or Arctic to clarify.
Or you just use zip-ties and a low rpm 80-92mm on the original heatsink and unplug the small fan.
