You really should, alcoholocaust.
Thanks all of you for the suggetions, but as you can see in the image below I don't much space to work with and moving the GPU to the second PCI-E is not an option since I have a WiFi card down on the PCI slot now. Also, I can't afford a new cooler altogether right now, a small "tower-style" heatsink would be within my budget and my space between and Hyper 212 and my GPU.

Yeah your cooler doesn't direct any air across the heatsinks at all.
I see from your sig you're using a 400R case. I know it's generally frowned upon on here, but would it be possible to mount an intake fan on the side panel while working on a more long-term solution?

Yeah, I notice that, only on the VRM/Mosfets HS get some airflow.
I only have some cheap 120mm fans that are not aligned with the HS and even so, the air barely reaches it. I'm buying proper 140mm ones soon for that purpose. Still I would prefer both solutions though.

I found this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=35-233-021
Two owners confirm that it fits on the UD3.
