I ain't no electrical engineer but that looks like some charred circuit board to me!

Well first dont run it without the fans, even for short periods of time. And that to me looks like it may be flux that has melted and spread? Im not 100% sure but that would be my guess.

That is a defective component on the video card itself. What you are seeing is the resultant heat damage. I suggest RMAing with the vender. This card is fairly new and should still be under warranty.

OCing carries risk due to increased heat generated and power consumed. Seems you pushed your GPU a little hard. Are you going to try the RMA route?
