I have a Guillemot Xentor 32, which has a core of 175 mhz, and RAM at 183 mhz. The problem is that every so often my whole picture (Only when running OpenGL or Direct3D) seems to tear, like the textures are coming apart, except it happens all over my screen, creating a crossword look.
I know that most TNT 2 Ultra's were clocked at 150/175 ? I think ... Lower than the Xentor 32 anyway.
Would the defulat overclocking of my video card be causing these problems ? My case temperature always seems to be in the 50+ celcius range, so that would factor in too.
I have TNT Clock (Which lets you set the Core and RAM speeds), so should I put them back to the default, would that help ?
And yes I do have all of the latest drivers, updates, direct 3d, etc ...
Sounds like your v-synch is off; turn it back on through the display control panel applet. Your fps will go down though because the screen will draw the complete frame each time instead of "tearing" to the next one.

If your chase temp is 50C then TNT2 chip is on the 70C minimum and RAM is also very hot.
70C is maximum for statndar PC components, and if you continue to use your PC when is that hot you could kill some of your components, or make even biger damage if you have important data on the Hard Drive.
Leave your PC chase opend. Remove all metal plates, from both sides or only cover depends what type of chase you have.
Also if you dont like the idea of te opend PC chase then install good and big fans in to the chase so how fresh cold air could come in to the chase.
