Default Overclocked the 9600 Pro

Okay I overclocked my 9600 Pro last night and got the core to 438 and the memory to 243 with it running without any artifacts on 3dmark03.

I've seen though that some have pushed the 9600 Pro way past these speeds, for example, HardOCP oc'ed their to:

core: 567
mem: 357.75

My question is this: How can they push their so far without any artifacts and I can't get mine past 438/243 without seeing artifacts?? I soppose this has to do with cooling. As of right now, I only have the stock cooling on the card along with a slot cooler directly below it. Anybody know?
