Hello,

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.


Thank Yoi

    Did you try and turn both fans by hand individually and see if the 1 fans turns with more resistance that is malfunctioning?

    Thanks for the response.

    The fan doesn’t seem to have any resistance when turning it manually.
