ProLiant 800 Thermal Upgrade Option Kit 144003-B22

If you upgrade a Compaq ProLiant 800 to a single or dual Pentium III 600MHz it is recommended to also install a 'Thermal Upgrade Option Kit'. I'm having major problems locating this part over here in The Netherlands, and the few that have one available ask astronomical prices for it. Can anyone give some more details about this kit? What does it consist of? I heard rumours the kit consists of some extra/replacement fans and some foam part to guide the airflow over the processors. Is this correct? Maybe someone can even point me to some links with detailed photos of the parts and/or a manual, so I can have a go at constructing the foam part myself.
Thanks,

Well, I managed to find a picture of the Thermal Upgrade Option Kit (attached). It seems to consists of a replacement fan (the big one), a smaller extra fan, and some parts with which you can probably build some kind of 'tunnel' over the processors to guide the airflow.
