Default Aftermarket GPU coolers

How effective are aftermarket GPU coolers over stock coolers?

I've never really thought about getting one before and I don't plan to, just wondering if anyone here has any experience in it.

The Accelero's are about the only Aftermarket cooling solution I would opt for on a Video Card. That, or the Scythe's.

The Coolink GFXChilla is excellent. Only thing I could suggest is maybe a lap job. Mine kept my 8800GT at ~37C idle and ~43C load. That's down from 65C idle and 90C+ load.
