If I were you I'd email Antec.. They sent me a set for free when I needed them :)

Re: Using a small case fan as a GPU fan (modding tips)?

In my experience, 40mm fans are rarely worth it on high power components. They barely blow any air unless you run them super fast (and are super noisy). Another downside is that the fans pull air through the cooler (instead of pushing) and pulling air is much harder than pushing it... I have no expe...

Furthermore these denials disproportionally hit people of color and the poor. Both groups tend to vote for Democrats.
