The title might be a bit confusing, but I'll try me best to explain here. I recently bought a new fan for my gpu, because the old one broke( bearing went bad). It's the GAA82BU/GAA82SU fan, however, I failed to notice that the backpiece, where you mount it, had a triangle, rather than rectangle shape, and 3 mounting screws. I would get another one, but it would take 3 MONTHS! for it to reach me and I can't find it anywhere in my country. Any ideas?

I would get a flat thin piece of plastic...or aluminum...or steel.

Cut it to a size large enough to cover the four mounting holes and the three mounting holes.

I would drill 7 holes in it and mount the fan to the plate and the plate to the GPU with small nuts and bolts.
