well first of all did the aftermarket cooler come with RAM sinks? the reason i ask is because alot of them dont cover the RAM and video card RAM gets really really hot

with that card you probably wouldnt want to push it to far but if your interested you have two choices

get either
ATI Tool
or
Riviatuner

i like rivia tuner and thats what i use its really easy to use and is functional.

what you should do thou is overclock it then use a benchamarking program such as 3dmark03 or somehting similar to test for visual aretifacts that means that you have oushed the card to far and should back it off

or what you can do is overclock it with riviatuner and then use ati tool to test for artifacts itself ATi tool also measures your GPU temp aswell

if you search for video card overcloking on google you will find heaps of tools do that and read up on it then post back with any question sbut i have given you a bit of a head start

Get and install the latest omega drivers they come with there own version of ATI tool built in makes overclocking very easy and you can load OC profiles from the tray.

All zalman coolers come with ram sinks usually if you dont have them you should have.

Rivatuner is good but its better for nvidia cards i find ATItool i find a better tool for ATI cards also has the advantage of not requiring another benchmarking app as it can do it itself.
