I opened up the cover to check for dust and noticed the fan not running. I have a trident 3 with gtx 1060. I replaced the fan with a new one and turned on the computer and the fan still didn’t come on. It got up to 100 and I turned it off. Card toast? Thanks

install afterburner and change fan RPM to 100% and see if fan moves. If it still does not spin, check the fan pin header and see if header and fan connector is properly linked.

Hey thanks for the response, first I thought it was the fan so I put a new one in and it still didn’t work. I installed the software and put it to 100% still didn’t work. I did have the power supply fail and replaced it. Everything thing works except the fan. So I bought a replacement video card on eBay. I wish there was somewhere else to plug in the fan. I bought a small fan to cool the video card while using the computer.
