Watercooling needed for over-clocking R9 290 TRI-X OC Graphics Card (4GB, HDMI, PCI-E)?

Hey guys,

So I heard from my brother that I shouldn't overclock the card in the title without watercooling as it will overheat badly, and i'm not prepared to spend a 100 more to watercool it. Does anybody know if this is true?
Thanks

    You can quite happily OC this card, as you will not hit the temperature which will cause it to throttle and besides, AMD made sure that the chip is able to run at maximum temperatures no problems http://www.anandtech.com/show/7601/sapphire-radeon-r9-290-review-our-first-custom-cooled-290/5
