You mean the case?
If your problem is with the case, buy a better case.

the case is fine it's just that the GPU was built wrong
has about a 15 degree misalignment between the metal plate and the board

If flipping the PC helped, there's a contact issue somewhere. Either the PCIE port or something on the board.

You bent some shit and now some connectors aren't touching, duh. Probably ruined it instead of returning defective product.

Probably not even defective, you're probably the defective one.

>GPU was built wrong
you should have returned it immediately, no matter how minor. Even a crack in plastic or a misaligned piece of metal could have been due to it taking a significant tumble or being slammed between pieces of heavy machinery.
