No graphics display after installation of the Komodo HD5800 (black screen). This is a random occurence, and no permanent damage to the card is expected.

Overtightening of the 4 screws fastening the stock spring-backplate.

Field/user resolution:
Uninstalling the block is not necessary.
Backing off the 4 screws by a minimum of 1 turn, and not to exceed 2 turns (an equal amount of turns for each screw is essential) resolves the issue, and restores graphics functionality.

This issue may affect all water-blocks shipped between December 1st, 2009 and January 31st, 2010.

Production Resolution:
Effective February 1st, 2010, inclusion of a nylon washer between board and spring back-plate prevents overtightening of the spring back-plate. Installation guide was revised accordingly.
