Am i safe at these speeds with a stock vga cooler?


I OCed my 9800 pro sucessfully to 400/375 tonight using ATI Tool. I got no artifacts at all in 3dmark03, and got a score increase from 5600-6000 Will i be safe with the stock ATI cooling or should i invest in a better vga cooler?

As long as there's no artifacts, you're safe. You should push it even more, if you can.

My stock cooler will do 410/375 but I use ATITool's 3d-app-detection and leave it at stock while doing normal stuff (web browsing, music, etc) and then I put it at 400/365 (headroom is always good to have) while 3d gaming.
