Many have found that once the stock aircoolers are installed back on their cards, they magically start working normally again. I would try that out before sending out the cards - it could save you some cash and heartache.

And I would inspect your blocks. Make sure that you didn't tighten them down too much, that you put the thermal pads all in their right places, not causing any shorts, and that there are no fractures causing small leaks.

Best of luck with everything.

Those stock thermal pads are PITA. They get more crunchy then ones supplied with any water block.
Probably they can only tell by looking at warranty label. It has to be in one piece.
Best of luck!

I put back both stock coolers back on, same thing.

Sorry to hear that. It's strange to have both cards die out right after the coolers were installed.

If you don't do this already, I would recommend next time to put on a pair of latex rubber gloves. It should help prevent any static electricity from harming your components, as well as preventing any oil on your skin from getting onto anything - especially the thermal pads.

By the way, which waterblocks did you use? I would consider RMAing them as well too just to be absolutely sure it's not them that killed your cards. If you can't RMA them, I would only install one block at a time when you get your cards back just to make sure you won't be completely down once again.

This honestly sounds like a short. Cards just dont die as soon as you take the stock heatsink off.

You pay to play man. You take a chance swapping coolers/blocks/etc. Bad things can happen when you do this and the maker isn't responsible for your mistakes as others have suggested.

This. It seems awfully odd that both cards magically died with no visual indicators of anything wrong.

the waterblocks I used were swiftech ones. There very high quality and decent. Anyways I went ahead and sent back both cards. Athlon already seemed to tell me refurbished replacements were on there way. Most likely there not going to care and just replace them for me. As suggested earlier companies don't usually deny your request, unless you send it back physically damaged and or without the original cooler on.
