Dunno about the OP but I got shipped a card with a severe bend in the shroud that was just tipping off the fan as it span.
It was making the shroud vibrate and make a lot of noise when it ran at about 80% fan, not above or below so it was weird, obviously it was hitting the natural frequency of the shroud or something.
I touched the shroud to dampen it and see if it'd stop making the noise and it did, but when I let go it snagged the fan harder than normal and snapped a blade.
My card OCs fairly well and it was partially my fault so I don't want to send it back for an RMA.
I attached the fan from an old AMD stock heatsink and it looks like it'll work pretty well, just needed to remove the cooler, take off the shroud, attach the fan and then reattach the cooler to the card and it's ready to go
There's also a thread with a solution here
