The fan failed so I replaced it with a 32cfm 80MM fan.  The temperature is running 72C.  At one point it went up to 78C.  Is this a safe temperature?  Also, does anyone know where to get factory replacement fans Model PLD06010B12HH that are new or improved?  Thank you.

I can't find any information on the max operating temperature for that GPU, but 78C is well within the safe zone for most GPU's, so I'd guess you're OK.

As for the fan, Google shows a few results for that part number, though not all look the same.  You might want to just plug it in and see which matches what you're looking for.

I would still look around the innards of the casing and if applicable fill it in with some of these badboys.
