I don't think $70 is remotely worth it considering the stock cooler does fine, but whatever floats your boat.
I get your point.
I just find the cooler getting a little noisy when temperature goes up in-games. Also, with a modded fan profile to let's say 35%, sound still bothers me. It becomes the noisiest component in my case.
I'm planning to keep this card for a long time. When it won't be good enough for "primetime" anymore, I'll transfert it into a HTPC-like rig for the living room. Quietness and cooling with low-RPM fans will be a must.
