    Just a quick question...

    I have an old GTX295 with a waterblock on it, never used it and no idea if it still works. I want to change the cooling but I don't want to spend the time unless I know it works. So would it be safe enough to plug it in, see if it posts then turn it off? I know merely posting doesn't mean it's completely working, but at least it means it isn't a complete brick.

    Thanks

    Yes its safe however a second option is to fill the block with water seal off the ends so the water is in there and then try it. Get it to psot screen then shut her down won't do damage.

    get a desk or pedestal fan and just blast air at it, as mentioned just get it to the bios and turn off. should be safe.
