Ghetto Mod Heatsink

I've got a 9800 pro and the temps on the card are one of the few things that are heating up my case. To aleviate the problem I decided to take my old p4 heatsink and an 80mm fan I had lying around and placing that on there. I'd need to cut a few of the fins off of it so that it'll fit, but I'm worried about it still being too heavy for the two pins that hold it on there...any way I can fix this problem? Also, will it matter if I use an alternate source of power for the 80mm fan (the mobo in this case) as opposed to the 2 pronged supply connected to the card? It won't hurt anything right?

I was figuring on lapping it, but why would you recommend molex over just a normal 3 pin into the board? More direct current? As it is it would just replace the blower I'm using now except be a bit larger. I'm also planning on using ceramique.

How would you recommend I add supports?
