Purple Highlighted Text

So i was surfing on youtube for a soundtrack.For some reason,all the text on youtube turns purple and i used the back button which returns to google,the text was all purple.This happened only once,so i was wondering,is it due to my graphic card overheating again?I have changed my graphic card once before due to overheating and I absolutely HATE to buy another one again.I spend way too much on graphic cards and I just bought this new one not too long ago.Sorry I didnt happen to get a screenshot.My first graphic card was gtx560 and it overheated before i had to change to the gtx650 cause i didnt have much money.I bought my gtx650 last december.

No i didnt change the fan speed recently.I used to change my fan speed to 40-50% using thundermaster and then i realise that the graphic card can do a better job of changing my fan speed as and when it requires to,I am currently playing a lot of World of Tanks by the way,on minimum graphics though,I can't afford another overheated graphic card since my computer is only like close to 2years old,which is pretty new.

Some letters, especially l, i, and j, all have a slight purple tinge with ClearType on, using Arial (and possibly other fonts) at sizes below 12 on 100% page size. I do not want to turn ClearType off as then all the fonts look worse. This happened after I tried fiddling with the ClearType...
