Does anyone know if (and if so, which) commonly-recommended GPU coolers would fit on an HD 7750?

I might want to put one in an HTPC. I know that there are probably already a couple of quiet models, and there's a passive one on the way, but I might just want to get the cheapest one I can find, and then strap on a spare heatsink that I have sitting around.

Looking at a bare board picture, the mounting holes seem unusually low (close to the PCIe connector), but I could be wrong.

Accelero S1 Plus supports 7750:

But I think a 7770 would be a better match for Accelero S1 Plus, because I'm not sure if a 7750 would even need such a huge HS.

I was thinking either a T-Rad2 or HR-03, since I have those sitting around. I agree that the S1 is probably overkill, and it probably wouldn't fit in my HTPC case.

If the HR-03 fits why won't the S1 fit?
I think the HR-03 will cool the card passively, the T-rad with a very slow fan.

In my case, the maximum height for the video card is not consistent. If I'm not mistaken, the S1 extends out further towards the "front" of the card (and therefore, the front of the case), so that would be a problem. But I'm not sure that the HR-03 would fit, either.

I wouldn't mind a slow fan on a T-Rad, though.

I wonder whether an Accelero L2 PLUS without the fan would be enough (in a Temjin-E case, without the drive cage). This is an 55W video card after all.
