That and although requiring some work, you can remove the defaulted heatsink/fan and clean the default goop that isn't worth a crap and replace the paste with something much better. Beleive it or not on my GTX 480 after doing that I got a 40C reduction in heat.
You can also possibly buy some aftermarket heatsink that of course is fanless and dissipates the heat really well without having to give in to a sucky card.
