I'm with Buildzoid on this one. It's shipping damage. PCBs are not that easy to crack.
They are when they weigh as much as they do now causing GPU sag, and vendors are using poor pcbs.
All it takes is a bump in the Y-axis shifting, from either a tilt of your pc and fall back in position to crack that location.
You also have a locking clamp right behind it, which i absolutely hate, and remove on all my builds if my gpu is not sitting the horizonal possition.
