So I did the memtest for approximately two and a half hours without any errors. It said 100% pass.
I think the problem Is in my graphic card. Based on several "colour" crashes during gaming. Is there are stability test for it?

3. Let it run until at least 7 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.
two and a half hours is not long enough you must let the program run for at least seven passes, often times I ask for more like 8-9 passes because sometimes the errors do not appear until then 7 passes should take 7 or 8 hours so let it run over night.

NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT

OCCT can stress test your GPU as well as running a GPU memory test (similar to memtest86+ but instead of system memory it tests your GPUs memory). It also provides a nice set of graphs with some good information for us, please post them here when the tests are done assuming that the stress tests don't cause BSODs.

It's better to run Memtest over night and run 7-8 passes. I think the instructions say the same.

You can test a video card using Furmark.

Had memtest on for the last 9 hours, with 10 passes and no errors. CPU overclocks right after the PC turns on right? Therefore if it was a CPU problem then I would already had a blue screen. The only logical answer is the GPU. I'll use OCCT for the next hour and see what happens.

@Ok, after roughly 45 minutes OCCT randomlay stopped, the graph came up and moments after i had a BSOD with error 0x00000124

@Just had three BSODs with around 5-10 minute breaks between each. Gonna try to reinstall windows with all new drivers and etc. If that doesent help I will try to get a new GPU off my warranty.

Ok guys, so I've formatted my disk and installed a fresh copy of windows. Did not get a single crash since and during the instalation. Is it possible that the last Windows was faulty?

___________
@edit

System fully stable on 4,7 GHz and overclocked GTX 560ti.
Its possible that some windows files were corrupt.

Close the thread please.

It is entirely possible, I have never seen it but from what I gather there are cases where a bad install can cause a false positive for a hardware error.

Egh ... Got happy too quickly D:
Scrolling down facebook, liking statuses ... BAM! Bsod. Same error. GPU wasnt overclocked.

So, what i know right now.

*Run memtest for 9 hours with 10 passes - No errors. During the time CPU was overclocked to 4.7 GHz and there was no crash.
*Most of the time GPU crashes on desktop, while surfing internet - But not when gaming.
*Crashes are very random, whether GPU is or is not overclocked I get a crash.
*All drivers are updated.

In the meantime im writing to Asus, my gtx still has about 1 year of warranty - Probably gonna replace it.
