you'll probably be able to push further, on my 6800gt my temps were 58idle on stock when i got my silencer it went to 46idle so over a 10degree drop. im sure your results will be the same or close to it.

Well a new cooler will help with overclocking and should make the card run more stable. The cooler the better basically. You can never say how much it will help with a overclock, but with temps, it should help quite a bit. I always say if you hit over 75, you should invest in a new cooler. Ya the card is probably fine at the temps, but it can cause the card to error or crash due to heat.

lol thats very true after i game for a while temps hit 70-80MAx . but in the ati tool runing the cube makes it very hot max temp i seen is 84 . i also adjusted the fan speed to run at 100% and try to keep it at 36 degrees idling . that work i can tell u that also i have a 80mm case fan blowing air onto the fan it self which also helps . i was realy confused about which cooler to get . i waas thinking either Arctic cooler silencer rev2 4 or the zalman alcu cooler with led's but that doesnt have memory cooling but has heat sinks. i realy wana get some more over clocking outa this card but dont want to go into water cooling just yet. :rolleyes:

Get the AC. .it vents the air outta your case, if you get the Zalman you gotta get the Vantec Spectrum Fan/Card to vent the hot air :)
