Question

Is my GPU dead ?

Hello I have a PC with an MSI R9 290 in it
Two wings from one of the two fans about two months ago and I used a software (MSI afterburner) to limit my fan speed so that it wont make a lot of noise and vibration but without letting the temps go too crazy as they usually are around the 74-82C depending on the room temp.
Please note that I don't play that much anymore and my gaming sessions don't exceed 3 hours.
Yesterday I was playing a game (fortnite) and I died so I got really mad and hit my desk, my computer immediately shut down and when I tried to start it after it just kept rebooting without anything showing up on the screen, when I took my graphics card out, my PC works fine..
I opened the GPU and nothing looked fried and no smell or anything and when I put it back in my PC it still won't start but please note that the fans do spin.
I am willing to provide any pictures if needed.
Thank you all.

Needs new fans. Why?

If you google the 290 series it was known that many models needed new heatsink compound to work properly. A few bum fans and I won't write it's going to work right.
