Thats called artifacting. You've set a way too high of an overclock to your gpu.

If you cannot access windows anymore you can enter it from safe mode and completely uninstall MSI Afterburner.

You are most likely trying way too high overclocks. Check out some tutorials on overclocking your gpu to avoid this mistake.
