Need to find shop that sell GPU fan cases.

So recently i bought this gpu, asrock rx6600 challenger d, when it arrived i noticed that 2 legs of fan case are broken, so i need to either buy new one or somehow fix it. Tried to search it on sale but no success. Seller is ready to pay for fan case replacement. Image for better understanding of problem.

You should return it, if something happened during shipping you can report it to the seller.

 

or put some glue / tape around it, that problem should not impact the performance.

I had this happen on 2 used RX470's I bought way-back-when. It's not a big deal as it serves no purpose other than holding the shroud in place.

 

Have the seller refund you a small amount to make it worth your hassle, then fix it yourself. Go to a hardware store a buy some longer screws and nuts. Drill the shroud all the way through where the legs used to attach, then slip the new screws through the shroud, broken leg pieces (as a spacer), and the heatsink. Tighten the nut on the bottom; you're done.

Zip tie is quite a good problem solver.

i did it with 2 plastic straps around cooper tubes, works good so far for few days. Seller can replace with other gpus like gtx 1660 super or something, because he had only one rx 6600, and he said he will pay for new fan case if i will find one. 

Also i was thinking to make 2 holes on fan case and screw it with 2 longer bolts. Something like on image, with round head and right size and colour to match fan case, so atleast i would look better.

Using it right now, it works. First i thought that it migh stretch because of temperature and make contact with fans, but it never go above like 48c, idle 35, gaming 40-45 so should work fine.

Remember to get some refund from the seller.

And I suggest not drilling the fan case unless it's really needed.
Well, unless you plan to never sell that GPU.

Don't just glue it. Make sure to just ask the seller for a partial money back refund as you won't be finding a shroud any time soon.

Or you can go like me. Remove the fan shroud and attach two 120mm fans if it has space for it.

best cooling mod you can do for the moeny for gpus on air. only problem is to make sure the fans ramp up when gaming... you can buy vga to pwm adapters kinda expensive of can cut the connector off the existing gpu fans. if you got quiet fans at 100% you can just run them 100% all the time too. you can add 120mm to it but it gets tricky ied recommend 92mm fans

 

the fan cant go past the top of the pcie pins or it will hit the pci slots.
