    Question Just got an rtx 2070 from Gigabyte and the fans won't turn on after a few days of them working fine. What should I do?

    Normally they turn off when idle but recently they won't turn on at all, even under load. Any ideas? I have set the fans speed to 100% in EVGA precision, as Gigabyte's own software is complete garbage, and the software allows me to do that but still says fan RPM is 0. What do?
