And also, if you plan on buying a top end card like the R600 or 8800GTX, they have great stock cooling so you won't see much of a temp difference anyways.
Well I really want to go buy this cooler at Fry's and I know they have the VF900. If they have the HR-03, sure, I'll buy it, though I doubt that they have it. I don't need a totally kickass cooler, cause I hardly ever buy top tier cards (DX10 included some time in the future). I dunno if I'll even get an R600 cause I won't be getting a new card until late summer when I pool all of my summer job funds, which by then they'll have different cores out I would think.

The sensor is not dead, nor is the card. In fact, it is very much alive, as I am using it right now. Idling at 56°C right now, overclocked, of course.
And stock coolers just keep getting better and better with the advent of heatpipes by video card companies looking to get into the performance market with hotter running GPUs. The X1950XTX has a bigass heatpipe, the 8800GTX does, and I'm pretty sure that the 8800GTS does.
But yeah, since I'm going to be keeping this card (computer) for another 7-8 months, I'll just get the VF900, DX10 card compatible or not. Thanks for all the response. Here, have healthy serving of reps.
