    I know Acekards are known for their poor production values and contact issues but I decided to go for one anyway and now I'm stuck with a defective card.

    Basically, my Acekard 2i looks like the bottom cart in the picture below:

    The PCB is not properly aligned and it's slightly on the left, making every pin misaligned. Compare it to a properly aligned cart:

    How can I solve this problem? I already read all of this thread but I didn't find any solution. Do I have to open the card? The paper tricks aren't enough to move the PCB. Do you know any solution?

    If you can't move it without opening it, you'll have to open it.

    The PCB is all one unit and sits inside the case (which is why some are aligned incorrectly), you should just be able to move it since it's not actually attached to the case, just held in place by some friction.

    After I open it, will I be able to put it together or will I need glue?

    I think it's held in by just clips (all the models)... But when I was taking mine apart one clip broke, so it'd be best to have glue on hand anyways.
