Using industrial fan to cool GPUs, feedback appreciated

Hey all, so my radeon 5700XT’s VRAM Temp loves to spike to 106c while on daggerhashimoto, and even if I crank up the fans on my GPU the memory temps still wont lower, and this causes my card to throttle only netting 2.86usd in BTC a day. So I went out and bought an 80W industrial to point directly at the system and my temps have since lowered to 96c and I’m netting 3.11USD a day.

The question is hand is, I’d like to know if this is safe for long term user(even though I plan to order some [thermal grizzly pads](https://www.amazon.com/Thermal-Grizzly-Minus-Pad-120x20x1-0mm/dp/B00ZJSBRE6/ref=sr_1_3_mod_primary_new?crid=KEUVX5FY04MS&dchild=1&keywords=thermal+grizzly+minus+pad+8&qid=1627256166&sbo=RZvfv%2F%2FHxDF%2BO5021pAnSA%3D%3D&sprefix=thermal+gri%2Caps%2C352&sr=8-3) to replace the ones of my GPU(if there are any to begin with) as I remember seeing a post where a standard house fan pointed at a rig caught fire and lit up the entire room. I’ve tried searching for the post but I can’t find it.

For reference, here is a photo of the specifications of the fan.
