Just recently purchased a Sapphire 9800 Pro Ultimate Edition.

The stock fan is removed, and installed is a Zalman Pipe fanless heatsink (which is huge).

Problem: I'm not used to having my peripherals get so hot. I can literally burn my hand if i touch the heatsink for more than 2 seconds.

Is this normal?

At the moment i have a big fan pointed at the side of my tower, to keep it cool.

Any suggestions? What should i purchase, if anything?

Maybe throw a 80 mill fan on top of heatsink (just lay it on it?)

thanks for all the suggestions.
