In my case:

Videocard dying because of stock cooler = 0
Videocard dying because of mishandled 3rd party cooler installation = 2.

Killed a GTX260 because water block removed the soldered ram ic when I was cleaning the waterloop.

Killed a GTX480 because the cooler was hitting the chassis (psu's ground).

Went to stick with stock or whatever cooler is slapped on it ever since.

Well, that's you :p

Maybe I'm just lucky. I've run a lot of coolers through the years, and in all cases when I've gone to sell the card, I've bolted back on the original cooler and sold the whole card as mint condition. I've broken CPUs, HDDs and motherboards before, but never a graphics card.
