Well if you are unable to Find a fix yourself RMA it with EVGA and dont Bake it,
Not a wise thing to do when you might get an RMA.

My warranty is up, can't RMA it with EVGA. I have it apart at the moment, but I really dont know what I'm looking at or if it will make any difference at all. One of friends said that it could be the memory, as that is what my motherboard is making noise for upon start up. How do I check memory?

I thought evga cards had lifetime warranties even with aftermarket coolers such as water blocks... I'm sure they'll still help u out... even at a minimal cost it is worth getting fixed

I tried RMA, they denied me on the grounds of my 1 year warranty. I don't really understand it either, but apparently the 295's have a 1 year warranty.

On a side note, just got off the phone with EVGA, they have no advice on the subject. It is currently apart in front of me, nothing really looks out of place or anything. What did I do to my poor card?!

You get a warranty if you register the card. NO registry, no warranty. You have to register within 30 days of purchase to get lifetime.

What thermal paste did you use?

I registered within 30 days, yet I only have a 1 Year warranty. However, I did have to RMA my first 295 due to bad vga ports. That might have something to do with the RMA fail.

The paste is some knock off AS5. It's like antec silver 5 or something.

I think i know...

The PC wont post if the processor has no "heatsink" Even if it does it may not be tight enough to transfer enough heat. Or the thermal paste was applied badly.

Cards like the GX2 And the 295 are hard to reassemble properly.

How ever this might not solve your first problem. you can try to bake it possibly or sell it online and buy your self a GTX 480 or something.

I'm not as computer savvy as I would like to be. What does "bake it" mean?

you put it in an oven and it reconnects the solder to the chip.
