    Makes sense, but I just want to see if by adding a fan to the missing port and turning it on would make all the other fans work properly and therefore figure out that the problem is just the missing fan, theoretically for that I don't think I need to go into Windows, just the BIOS or even just the logo screen. As soon as it works I would just put the graphic card back and buy the missing fan.

    Where's the risk on doing that? (legit question)

    Thanks for the help man.

    No changes are needed moving from one card to two other than having the second card and sli cable.

    So what I'm proposing is risky or not?, for me it sounds pretty simple but I don't want to mess up anything.

    What about moving from two cards to one which is what would be needed in this case?

    Just checked where I read about going from two GTX 1080 to one not being easy and that was about the MSI GT83, not a Clevo chassis. Keeping fingers crossed that this will not be the case for your Clevo so you won't have to wait for that fan.

    The P870TM1 Model CPU FAN is a fixed part of the CPU cooling assembly, not sure if a GPU FAN can just be transplanted.

    Also systems with only a single GPU expect the secondary GPU FAN to be present, so the system would still do an EC shutdown as long as only two are installed.

    Apart from that, switching between single and dual GPU is no problem at all on these systems.

    Thanks for clearing that up, looks like this is something else that Clevo did better than MSI!

    You’ve got a solid system that can run with a little work. Buy replacement fans. This will fix your issue from what the other members are saying. Then, get a new LCD panel they’re pretty inexpensive considering.

    You are good to go after this.

    They are physically identical, just make sure that no thermal pads smash together because one stuck to the card and one to the heatsink.

    I guess that sums it up, it only needs a new fan. Thanks man, really appreciate it.
