I am telling you that is a sign of a bad driver, or it is overheating, whether you think it is or not.

70*C? Theres your problem. That is way way way too hot. Most people start panicking at 65*C and shut down their PC. Something is causing that PC to run too hot. AND, if it keeps running that hot, its going to go bad. I can't think of any reason, is the room very hot? 4 fans...I only have 2 fans in my PC and my CPU is 50*C and system is 30*C.

Hmm. Well, I don't know what specific map you're talking about in CS:S since I don't play it, but I've seen the checker design on a map (Very sure it wasn't scout and knives) on my friend's PC. He was having Video Card problems.

I can't think of any reason for this other than the video card has something wrong with it's hardware.

You could wait until tomorrow and get some answers from the more experienced members.
