OK ... i just installed my brand new swiftech WC. (APEX ultra)

Putting everyting back in place with Distilled water and PT nuke. CARREFULLY filling it. Tilting till no more air. Just one LIL drop followed from the top off my case to the bottom, and one LIL drop on the back of the GPU but wipped it as soon as i saw it. I had removed my Nforce Cooler cause its kinda hot when i game. so i took it off, cleaned it and back on whit new Thermal paste.

Waited about 2hrs before turing it back ON and DAHHHHH ... Windows show up and boom lotta weird colored pixel... i can see that its my windows .. but whit tonns of weird color pixel with some alignement.

After restarting, i took a lok at the bios, NB v was 2.85 v ???? WTF ! its supposed to be 1.5 no ? took everything to normal, redone my OC to 3.6ghz, started again and finally windows run, but NO games ... even trying to use Nvidia monitor mess the whole thing up. Weird colored pixel and now CPU restart after 10 sec when this happen.

Windows run smooth ... 1650x1080 ..... :( 

its similar to this.

2x2gb G-skil Pi-black

well ... :( 

Just redonne my OC, resetted everything to be SURE theres nothing somewhere in the bios messed up. 3.6 ghz ... runs fine ! Have a 80mm fans splashing to the NB, temp are good.

But STILL this anoying Color Pixel freeze :'(  as soon as i start a game or even opening nView... i can inspect mobo-ram-cpu but if i click the GPU button ... COLOR PIXEL like the pix above all over the screen. :'( 

GPU temp is fine ... a dead GPU ?
