Not sure if the tachometer itself is broken or just something on my motherboard. But because the sensor always reads 0 RPM my GPU is thermal throttling itself at 67c. On HWInfo it says GPU Fan (ODN) is constantly at 0 RPM, but a little lower it has a different icon and says GPU Fan speed and stay at 19%. I've gotten fan tach speeds briefly right after boot before, but haven't been able to reproduce any similar activities, so is there any way to change sensor data/ any ideas on fixing it physically. I messed up the male end pretty bad but as far as I know the connection should be good enough. No Idea if there are any issues in the female end/motherboard
