Hi there. So I have a minor problem. In my current setup, as far as the graphic card is concerned, I have the r7 250x and the plastic part that goes over the fan came off. My question is: Can I still use the pc with that graphic card despite this problem, while I'm trying to piece together a new pc? Or will it cause more problems (i.e. Screen freezing, monitor going black but backgroung noise from chrome is still audible. This are problems that I have faced in the past two days)? 

Thanks for the answers in advance.

Could you include a picture?

If the card still has fans to keep it cool it should work.

I am a human that makes mistakes! If I'm wrong please correct me and tell me where I made the mistake. I try my best to be helpful.

Literally tape a chassis fan to it if you have one.

Or just rubber band the gpu fan on somehow, you need a fan blowing air over the card, how you do it is unimportant

This is the card. The fan seems to be intact and to be working correctly, even though when i turned the pc on it kept making a noise like something is stuck between the fan, but there was nothing nor it bumped into the metal thing below it. So there should be no issue. I can use still use it.
