Running a 1060 with just one fan?

I have a Nvidia 1060 6GB card that I bought used and have in my Dell T5810 as a VFIO passthrough (manjaro host). One of the fans (two fan version) has lost a bearing and is running a little slow/ rattling. Since it is only used for passthrough. How bad an idea is it to run it with just one fan until I can get a replacement? I have just replaced the thermal paste on the card, so the heat sink should be doing as well as possible.

Have you watched the temperatures?

As long as it stays below like 85C it’ll be fine.

First comes to worst if there is space you could always zip tie or tape a normal case fan to it!
