**** man, you should have not used Artic Silver, it can be conductive. On mosfets you can use the cheaper white/generic heat paste.
I feel kind of bad, should've told you to make sure not to use Artic Silver there.
But you said it only happens going to 3D mode which makes me think the Artic Silver maybe did no harm.
