Question Radeon RX 570 does not boot at all

So I decided to swap out the stock cooler for an Arctic Extreme III. The new cooler was missing the 4 screws, so I decided to use zip ties. Needless to say, the cooling was sub-optimal. I decided to put my old stock cooler back. Applied MX-4, and put everything back. Now the card does not boot at all.

Here is what's happening:
  • PC turns on. GPU is lit, and fans turning.
  • Monitor says "No Signal"
  • I re-seated the card and power plug 3 times. No change.
  • I cleaned and re-applied MX4 thermal paste. No change.
I put back everything exactly the way it was before. It worked fine when I installed the Arctic Extreme III. There was some MX4 overflow on the GPU die, but that shouldn't short anything. Before I toss this card in the trash, I wanted to ask you guys if there is anything else I can try. Such a shame to break a card over a stupid cooler change.

Thanks!
