Is my gpu broken?

I recently installed water blocks on my GTX 285....

- With both cards plugged in, booted to safe mode, under device manager, both cards are recognized.
- Cannot boot normally with drivers installed.
- Tried both cards on the same PCI slot individually, only one of them works.


so is my card broken or is it just glitched on the software side? I'm doubting it because device manager recognized both cards and installed drivers to both of them just fine. What are your thoughts? Thanks

  2. Well you just said that one works fine while the other does not. If they were working just fine prior to you putting blocks on them then chances are that you broke one of the cards and didn't know it. Check the back of the pcb for missing parts.
