Default Long shot, need single slot cooler for 3650 AGP

Hey Guys, I have a weird situation on my hands. My wifes rig that I built uses a AM2 CPU and a Powercolor 3650 AGP card. I built it to utilize some of my old AGP cards (at the time) but now I am stuck using this AGP card and the fan is dieing. I have oiled the fan a couple of times but it keeps making noise. The board is a mATX and the PCI slot next to the AGP card is occupied. I don't want to buy another AGP card (for obvious reasons) so are there any decent single slot coolers you would recommend for this strange card? I tried using the HSF from a PCIe 3650 I have but it hits some of the capacitors and I don't think the holes lines up either.

Is there room on the other side of the card? Maybe something like the TR HR-03 will work, it's not listed but you never know.

Im not sure if this counts, but you can always get one of those video card fan coolers that fit in a PCI slot. It takes up a single slot, but I'm assuming you want it to stay in the same slot as the 3650.

Thanks but that won't work since I have the next slot occupied.

The TR HR-03 cost as much as a new video card! Kind of defeats the purpose.

How bout the Coolink GFXChilla? If you run it on passive mode (w/out fans) there should be more than enough space for a single slotter.

With the fans, the cooler has about 1mm of clearance to the next pci slot :(
and cooling is compromised (due to stuff blocking airflow)

I'll check that one out, thanks. Otherwise I think I will just remove the fan, leave the heatsink and strap a 120 mm fan on above the card or something.

No mention on that one if it fits a 3650 so I will have to measure the holes to see. It is currently on sale at newegg.ca as well.
