If I have a 7900GT KO superclocked would it be worth it to get an aftermarket cooler?

The KO is supposed to have a pretty good system stock

I have that same board, and it incorrectly reports the tempurature.

My way of checking if its hot or not. Try touching the hsf. Ifs its warm then you know its [tpb;y pretty hot, but when i touch mine, its never warm to the touch and actually feels cool.

-just my .02
