i woulda used the tape lol

your computer isnt booting, its just powering on.

pull the gpu heatsink off and make sure its making contact with the gpu
I pulled it off about 3 times but am noticing that I am experiencing the same issue as other owners of the Musashi. The backplate thumb screws are as tight as they can be but the heatsink still "wiggles". It's making contact with the gpu but it can move from left to right.

I didn't use the tape that came on the Scythe RAM sinks because it is pretty much garbage. I had previously done my RAM IC's using the AS epoxy (with the stock Zalman heatsink on the GPU and VRM cooler) and it worked so it's definitely something I did when trying to get the Musashi on. It's just frustrating being this close to Christmas and already spending most of my cash on gifts. I have a 2900XT I can fall back on for the time being but still just peeved.

being able to spin the cooler a little is normal for alot of coolers, even on cpus, its wiggles where it tilts away from the card thats bad
onlything i can figure is you got epoxy on the pins of the vrm's, and its grounding something out on top the pcb instead of back

Have you used the HDMI on the card before? Maybe try using a different cable to connect to your monitor.

I did my build in the kitchen (no carpets in sight) and in underwear to avoid any possible static. My roomates where kinda creeped out.

Also, did you try putting the old heat sink back on to see if that works? I would try that.

And maybe a quick boot with your secondary card just to make sure its not something else as well.

I don't think any epoxy leaked onto the board as I applied it with a tootpick in extremely small amounts on the VRMs but I will try to remove the sinks as best as possible and reapply them on the VRMs to be safe. The RAM IC's are fine as I have had the sinks on there without any issues for over a month. I just recently purchased the Musashi because even with the RAM sinks and the Zalman VF1050 that came stock on my card, temps while folding would get to around 85C which I know isn't extremely terrible but I wanted the card cooler.

What sucks is that the more I think about this, I originally seated everything at my desk at work and it is extremely dry in my office. I get a shock every time I leave my seat and come back and touch the metal part of my cubicle. I really hope I didn't zap the card.

When I get home I will see if I can remove the VRM sinks and check the pins for any epoxy that might have leaked out onto the board. If I can't get it to work then I have already started looking at replacement solutions that aren't too expensive (HD4860 mainly but also thinking about an XFX GTS250 since I fold more than anything else these days).

I have only ever used the HDMI port on this card. To be sure though I even connected a DVI>HDMI dongle and swapped out the HDMI cable but still nothing.

Sounds like my 4890 that died yesterday. For me, I saw the death though - which was from overheating due to the fan dying (awesome, 3 weeks into it).

The outcome (no signal at all), sounds like what's going on here. Just a suggestion.

I purchased the card a few months ago. It was only the Musashi cooler that was purchased and received yesterday. My card was working Wednesday night when I burned a DVD and then shut it off. As much as I hate to admit, I know it was something that I did when attempting to installed the Musashi on it.
