  1. Without knowing which MSI GTX 1050 you're talking about (there are 15 in total), i can't say how it exactly disassembles. But like with all GPUs, you need to unscrew bunch of screws, most of them located at the back of the GPU. Some can be hidden even under stickers for warranty purposes.

    It is the GTX 1050 GAMING X 2GB

    If all you want to do is repaint the red and black shroud, it shouldn't be too hard to take off.
    But I think it may be connected to the heatsink.
    Tom's did a teardown of the msi 1050, looks like you only need to remove the 4 screws in the back to get the heatsink off.
    Keep in mind you'll have to clean off and reapply the thermal paste over the GPU if you do take it off.
