After I installed my waterblock last nite, I cant play games.

Furmark works fine but when I try to play games, it will try to start the game it will either stay black, or exits to windows and says:"Direct X encountered a problem." or sometimes restart

I did the clean install of the drivers and I recovered my OS still same thing
I even changed my CPU, NB to the stock clocks still nada..

Is it dead?

you installed a waterblock on the HD 5970?

Might have the cold bug. I've seen a few with it.

Yep,

Edit: found what cold bug is, Th only way to fix it is to create a profile with higher idle clocks?

I increased the idle clocks and it fixed the issue. Boy was I scared.

Thanks +rep
