I built this rig September 17th 2019.
It ran fine up until October 9th 2019.
I was running games like Apex Legends, Sea of Thieves and software like Adobe Premiere Pro CC on the rig. It never failed and was working like a beast.
On 10/9, I was playing Sea of Thieves on max settings and I start to smell a burning plastic/chemical smell. After quick inspection of my house, I found the route cause was my PC.
I quickly turned it off and started looking at it. I didn’t notice any burns upon a quick inspection.
Turned back the rig on, installed the GPU monitoring provided by EVGA and noticed FAN 1 would not spin up manually, only FAN 2.
FAN 1 was making a noise like it was attempting to spin up.
Would it be safe to assume the burning plastic is a the GPU because cooling isn’t working properly?
Never had this issue with any other rigs I’ve built; just looking for advise and help.
