i noticed the glass on my case was bending from the GPU's hot air hitting it and im not sure what to do, its taking in air from the bending glass i have the CoolerMaster Stryker SE and a very weird Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3gb (heres a picture of the card https://imgur.com/a/gRsuZHJ)

The graphics card hits 55c while playing games at like 45% but before it was hitting 75 to 80c i think thats what caused it to bend (i re-applied thermal paste to the card)

Im pretty quite surprised something like this is happening, but at the same time not so much... Your card often goes nearly at 90 Degrees right ?

I think i got 2 solutions:
-The budget one : Cut a rectangle in the glass and replace it with steel or metal filters and put some screws on it to hold it.
-The expensive one (best one aswel) buy a Watercooler or a cooling pad for the GTX 1060. Since there will be no more hot air hitting the glass it wont damage it anymore...

That doesn't look like any 1060 I've ever seen - can you post a pic of the rear I/O? Or even list what's there? HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, VGA etc....

FWIW, that case uses tempered glass. TG can withstand sustained temps of up to 450'F IIRC (>200'C). There's just no way it's being hit with temps that high.

I wouldn't necessarily trust a GPU-Z readout - plenty fakes out there that will have custom firmware flashed, to appear as another card.

Not saying it *is* a fake, just saying I haven't seen that design before.

Doesn't look like the glass is bending, just looks like it's not fully secured in the latching holes on the case itself.
No mention of the outputs on the GPU?

*EDIT*
Actually, does look like an OEM HP 3GB 1060.

the chip on the card is a GP106 theres a vin on the card that is: 180-1G410-DAAA-HPA01

The graphics card came from a HP Omen 870-224 from bestbuy
