That single large fan idea looks good. I've already lost one 5500, but I dunno whether it's to heat or general old age. I'm thinking of getting maybe one of those pci slot fan blower thingys and putting that right under the card, or make one myself out of 2-3 80mm fans.
You can always toss it in the oven and bake it, or for more precision use a heat gun.
My 8800GT was revived 5+ times that way before I decided the effort wasn't worth putting off buying a new card.
