My fans aren't working.Helppp!

So basically for a few weeks now my gpu fans were spinning off and on...I bought new fans to attempt to replace it..but in the process I was struggling, they weren't coming out and I pulled the housing off the gpu circuit..I took my gpu for someone to solder it back on it looks like it's in place but the fans aren't spinning.... Tips on what I can or of there are any alternative options.

P.S.

I attempted to turn on GPU and it boots into window perfectly, there is just no way to cool it down when I am playing games.

what's the temp?

 

because GPU nowadays shut their fans off if it's not running hot

low demanding games may run without the fans spinning, it's been a mainstream thing since 900 series nvidia GPU (or even before)

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I turned on a game and turned on software called speedfan..checked temps and let it run to 90C and turned Fan speed to 100% and still nothing and I just turned my pc off.

It is your GPU’s fans fault. If you don’t know how to swap your GPU’s fans, buy a better one like 1660S

Cuz I can see that nothing is wrong with your GPU except for the fans

Do remember to quote me, so I'll see your reply

 

Well if it's faulty fans or fan controller, you could always modify the fans to use case fans

@Moonzy I'll take it down to micro center because I don't have the required knowledge or tools. I'll ask them to see what they can do or if they can do it for me.

More likely than not, they'll tell you it needs to be sent to the manufacturers to get it fixed

 

If it's a new card, is it not under warranty? I guess it's voided when you broke it

The fan pins coming off the board might have damaged that part of the circuit board. I'm not sure if Microcenter does soldering work though.

If you don't want to send it in for repair you could zip tie fans to the GPU cooler, it works just as well or better than the stock fans.

Is it possible for something to be soldered on the wrong way and not receive power? It used to be the other way around before I had someone solder it for me when I pulled it off the board @Blademaster91

At this point I myself wouldn't tinker with it anymore.  I would just go ghetto and strap on a cpu heatsink on that thing a zip tie a fan or 2.

 

Or it's time to put on a water block for the obvious.
