Accelero Xtreme for GTX 260

I have the Gainward Golden Edition GTX 260 with the not so stock cooler on it with two small fans blowing directly onto some nice looking heatpipes. However, the thing is very noisy and I want to make it quieter. I already have the Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme cooler that was originally and very briefly fitted to an XFX GTX260 that ended up not working. I know this cooler is literally silent and can cool very efficiently, but it's a bastard to put on and I would need to buy another set of thermal pads for the chipsets.

Should I or Shouldn't I? If not I will most likely sell the thing. And yes, it really is that big.

If its so noisey its bothering you then go for it.

My accelero twin turbo should apparently have been hard to put on aswell but the only thing i found hard was working out how to postition the heat sinks the best =\.
