Have 2 cards....

One of the cards works but was overheating bad. To the point of shutdown. I took it all apart and sure enough the heatspreads were totally clogged with dust. So i cleaned it all out, put some new TP on what needed it and placed all the heat pads back.

Put it together and... nothing... wont even post now. The blue light on port #1 will not come on at all.

I read online that both SLI connects are directional so i took it apart and sure enough it was wrong, so i put them back on right, put it all back together and... nothing.. I have no clue what the hell happen. I have to bake my 8800 GTX every 2 months to keep it working and i can do that fine but i cant even clean this thing without it breaking. ***. Anyone have any clues has to what may be going on?

Card #2 i really have no clue. I have NOT taken it apart yet before you ask >). It shows post fine and the windows 7 loading screen but soon has the loading screen goes off, so does the card. I had read to try to change the monitor to another DVI connection so i did and then it shows nothing, not even post.

Maybe you cranked the screws down too tight? Static discharge?

That, or you used too much TIM and it's shorting out some connectors.

LOOP ORDER DOESN'T MATTER.

I dont think i got the screws to tight. I already had thought about to much TIM and had another look at it but it seem to be fine. First time ever taking a card apart and having it worse after than before.
