One of my brand new EVGA SC17 1070's internal fans stopped. First I heard clicking noises and then it stopped. The other fan was working just fine, and the system was running normally. The temperatures when not under load also seemed fine (below 60 degrees Celsius) I need help. :(

I am also using it like i would do normally but I am not gaming due to one of the fans not working.

if you heard clicking it means something is either suck in it, or it somehow got off balance and is stuck/broken. you mention brand new, this is certainly something to deal with the manufacture for, if you open it, you would be risking warranties, and a nasty mess, as laptops never seem to come apart as easy easy should.

I would indeed not try gaming on it until this is fixed. web browsing should ideally be fine.

thanks for the reply, I got it to a computer store and they somehow fixed it. They said that the fan was not getting enough power, so they replaced something broken, it was a black chip on the board. I think the problem was that I messed a bit too much with the voltage when overclocking the laptop.
