Default Over clocking my BFG 6800GT

I hope this is the right forum to post this. But I have a question about OCing my BFG 6800GT OC. I have the reference design BFG 6800GT and I installed coolbits overclocking tool. And I have the newest set of drivers from nvidia. I let the coolbits check to see what my maximum OC is and it set my card to 434 on the core and set the memory to 1.12GHz. I've left it set there and ran some benchmarks, and a few games and it's a BEAST! So far so good, no artifacts, and it seems real stable. I try to check the temp as fast as I can after say running 3DMark2K5 and the highest I have seen it was 72c. but it was dropping. This card more than doubled my score in 2K5 with my old 9800Pro. But what my question is this. Is it safe to leave my card at this speed? Or should I set it back to say Ultra speeds?
