    Hi guys!

    First off...I need to find out if my Swiftech Ultima XT (linked below) is enough to cool a GTX 480 (using an EK FC480 block). Would I need an additional radiator or any other components (other than barbs/tubes etc)?

    Secondly...I seemed to have killed my EVGA GTX 295+ (dual pcb version) after attempting to fit in a waterblock! I've dismantled/re-assembled it several times, cleaned the SLI connectors/slots, made sure they're connected properly (although they did seem a bit loose)...but the blue LED on the bottom board does not light up and I don't get past post (green LED on top comes on though).

    Thanks in advance for any info/advice!

    I killed my 295gtx by knocking off little black parts on the card , have a good hard look and see if any are missing the are hard to see they are about 1mm by 3mm.
