Vega 56 overheating

Hi!

 

I've got 4 Vega 56 MSI stock air-cooled GPUs, but one is really struggling with overheating even with full fan speed.
I bought them all second hand, which pretty much makes the process of warranty claim a lifetime achievement.

 

So with that out of the question I felt no other choice but to take the GPU apart, hoping it would only be dry thermal paste to be replaced - but instead I noticed the heatsink.

I haven't been able to google any good close-up pictures of how it should actually look, but this gap can't be normal, can it?

Does anyone have any bright ideas what it might be if it's not the heatsink?

And I haven't been able to find any spare part heatsinks either - no luck with the numbers written on it.

 

Humble regards,,

Kjell
