XFX Radeon HD 5870; stock fans?

Hi Tom's Hardware and crew!

I have a simple question about GPU stock fans.

:??: Q1:Will graphics cards such as this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150496&cm_re=XFX_Radeon_HD_5870-_-14-150-496-_-Product
Couldn't find the (XFX Radeon HD 5870 1GB 2xDVI 1xDisplay Port 1xHDMI GDDR5) with the same fan and all.

-> overheat with the stock fan on (normal/regular use with no over clocking)?
Or are they made so that I don't have to worry about toasting the GPU/Graphics card without buying an extra VGA-cooler?

Thanks in advance

  1. It wouldn't be very smart for them to build a product that could burn itself out during normal, everyday use, now would it?
