Default Zalman VF3000-A is it worth it

Hey, i was wondering whether i should install the Zalman VF3000-A on my XFX HD5870. Get some more performance out of it and generally make it a bit 'cooler' (see what i did there).
Anywho, im in the UK so the warranty will not cover the change of cooler, so was wondering if it is worth the risk or should i wait 2 years lol.

I wouldn't worry about it personally. The temperatures are well within range and personally I think the stock red and black cooler looks good. just my $0.02 though.
