I just printed one off in 3D Fuel Pro APLA and am using it to print with more of the same. This filament likes higher temperatures for a PLA from what I've found so far. 220C normally and 230 or even 235 for the initial layer to help with adhesion. It is also a more heat resistant PLA though. If I have any problems I'll report back.

Out of curiosity, how has the PLA held up being that close to the heat sink?

Mine is fine, no warping or weakness in the material. I have about 100 hours of printing time with the fan shroud. Since I only print in PLA at 196-197C, my heat sink doesn't get hot as long as the fan is blowing air on it. Maybe someone else can comment about 240-250C temperature ranges for printing ABS, but I think it should be fine. Heat sink temperatures shouldn't even come close to material melting point.
