I think I see what you are saying. Does the assembly rotate but the back bracket stays still?
I guess, in reality, it shouldn't matter a great deal. So long as the contact between the die and the processor is snug, then the HSF should still operate correclty. If it's only rotating when you move it (and not when you, for example, rotate the card) then it won't be an issue once it's installed.
The only other thing you could do (whih I probably wouldn't) is screw it in more firmly. But you run the risk of damage, and I dare say from the look of the metal tabs beneath the fan, they might just bend down and dig into your card.
