I am checking the Apistek website to see if they sell this part. If I find something, I will post back.

In the meantime, I think just give a toll-free call to Galaxy Support in your country. In the US:-
new 24/7 service number : 1-877-253-5841 (Canada and US)

if it was me, i'd just remove the plastic shroud and strap a 120mm fan to it. removing the shroud alone drop 10 C for me.
but if u have warranty, contact galaxy.

I have seen this method before. While it does drop the temperature of the GPU, the downside is that it dumps all the heat inside the case. This requires careful planning of thermal management or else it will raise temp of other PC components.
(Perhaps you can post a few pics of your setup for OP's reference?)

A (sort of) 'half-way' approach is to keep the shroud but to replace the entire flip fan+square frame assembly with a larger/stronger one which is zip-tied to the shroud.

Note to OP:
I cannot find a replacement in Apistek website. I suppose that fan is made specially for Galaxy and so the best bet is to contact Galaxy for a replacement part.
