Valve gasket replacement

Hey Beemer world! Just looking for some advice and tips for replacing my valve cover. I recently had an overheating issue wit my car.

At first I believed it was just the water pump since there was no smoke being blown or smell of coolant. After replacing the pump it was evident the pump was bad because large amounts of smoke and the smell of coolant are present.

Should I perform a compression test to ensure there aren't any cracks or faulty valves before changing the gasket? All input is appreciated... THANKS!!!
