Recently my second fan stopped spinning on my INNO3D RTX 2070 TWIN X2.
I tried forcing it to start running with both MSI Afterburner, BIOS and the INNO3D TuneIT software.

I tried manually cleaning the heatsink and the fans with q-tips and compressed air, and also controlled that every cable is good.
HWmonitor and also TuneIT and MSI afterburn tells me that the fan is running at 810811 RPM, lol.

I can use my PC, but as soon as I go in-game, the temperature rises and it turns off (of course).
Any suggestions about how to fix it? or is it just dead?

Bonus Info: When i took out the GPU, i noticed that the amount of dust amount on the fan not working, was significantly lower than the working fan. Has it been faulty for a long time? or is it just because its located further away from the output cables, and more centered in the PC?

By not cleaning out the dust bunnies often enough... You may have irreparable damaged the fan motor from overheating.
Replace fan and keep your PC spotless.
