Hello, this is a bit of an odd question but I figured I may as well ask -
I've noticed that even after a re-paste / re-mount my cooler / fan for my M2000 just isn't able to cool the card properly (it hits around 80c then starts down clocking from 1227 to 1050-1150 depending on the specifics). I was wondering if there was any 'replacement' cooler available for the M2000 or perhaps the 'relevant specifications' to be able to find some other suitable replacement were out there somewhere and I just haven't found them yet?

don't know why you did not search ebay before posting? a heatsink/fan is 12 dollars
this one might also work (the fan is the same as the one in the m2000)
another method is to remove your heatsink, then remove the fan and note the fan's model number and search for that fan model

The cooler / fan is deficient and needs to be replaced. I measured the mount spacing as 53.3 by 53.3mm. I would guess that would work with other / aftermarket coolers marked as 53mm (not sure how tight the tolerances are other than 1mm or more clearly noting that something is no longer compatible). Granted I could try drilling / filing to make things fit, but risk messing up the component / mounting bracket to the point of uselessness.
Anyway, the other issue is that just because it fits doesn't guarantee a new heatsink / fan would actually do any better (I've found a number of 'similarly sized' options, and a few much larger options) or even clear all the components on the board / be too large for the board, so I was hoping someone had some experience with this. Otherwise its just me guessing and hoping I get it right on the first try or two (after all at some point I'm spending a significant portion of the card cost just trying to replace a part rather than just buying something better, not that now is a great time for gpu shopping....).

the nvidia quadro line of professional cards are designed to remain under their rated temp using the stock cooler/fan
the max temp for the 2000 series of gpu chips is 105c as i recall, which is far cry from your stated 80c
i do not recommend installing any 3rd party cooler that does not explicitly state compatability with your model card
doing so risks cracking the GPU or overheating the card to failure due to improper thermal mounting
you might want to consider looking into the thermals of your current case as many 3rd party cases are poorly designed for airflow and spend the budget on "RGB bling" instead of thermals also a small SFF case will do worse than a mid tower/full tower
simply because a case has 10 or more fans does not make it a good thermal case as it's how/where/what type fans that count
