    I changed the stock cooler on my 4870 once and it worked. I reseated the cooler and ramsinks and it stopped working(no detection by motherboard).
    Did you try putting the stock cooler back on?
    Do the LEDs on the back of your card stay lit after booting?
    When you removed the stock cooler, did you also remove the four pin slot that connects the fan's wire to the card(leaving only the four pins, instead of the white slot)?
    Your problem sounds similar to mine, but your horrible punctuation and sentence structure may have mislead me.
