XFX 6800Ultra - VF700-Cu - high temps?

I got the card XFX 6800Ultra (AGP 8x)

Stock @ 425MHz/1100MHz
Running @ 441MHz/1210MHz (24/7)

Idle temp: 56 degrees
Load temp: 86 degrees (running ATiTool for 10minutes)

I got the cooler Zalman VF700-Cu, I've had it for three months now, but I'm wondering how good it actually cools my card. Compared to stock cooling, I got higher idle temps with the VF700-Cu. And I cant get it overclocked any further than with stock cooling.

Could there be anything I've done wrong in the assembling?
Or isn't that cooler a that good cooler?

What's the best cooler I can get when it comes to overclocking the gaphic card? (Except from watercooling)

the vf700 works amazing IF you have good airflow in your case to push the warm air out. If not you might be beter off with a Artic Silencer or a v1 ultra
