    I think, it was already broken. Because I am changed now few times between Radeon and GTX. And Radeon works rock solid with same screw tightness etc.

    you cannot measure with screw tightness. You must measure x-bracket length of screw post....you probably keep killing the nvidia cards because you use too short of a bracket.

    The card is not dead. This particular GTX 965M need some special operation to make it work. I am now running with it.

    Shortly:
    Did not post anything to screen (any).
    I looked over remote desktop
    In device manager windows didn`t recognize it (show as generig VGA etc)
    Installed inf-modded drivers
    Restart
    Windows login screen pop-up!
    Tested with 3D mark demo for temps ect.

    So don´t give up, if there are little bumps in the road.

    Edit: Few hour game testing and machine are rock solid.

    Is there any solution for posting screen befoce driver installation?
    Just wondering, if I have to reinstall windows. I have to change radeon back?

    Well, here is to add another successful Clevo GTX 970M install on the M15x! It was a direct bolt on and just had to use the modified inf file, along with Svl7's vBios. Using the Slim 240W adapter and the center pin mod, no throttle issues. The HDMI/DP port works great with audio too. Will be testing temps and CPU multipliers soon.
