Yeah, nVidia sets the threshold to 135C for the 6800 GT. But don't rely on that as your max temperature mark. Anything above 90C is getting very dangerous. My 6800 GT (410/1120) was running at 90C under load in BF2, which obviously isn't very safe if done consistently for a good deal of time. WC should fix that.
Get coolbits though. It's the OC'ing utility straight from nVidia. All Coolbits does is unlock those settings OC settings. It really doesn't have any advantages over other OC'ing utilities, but might be the simplest available.
