I am playing wow and at random times, on random objects, I get this:

My specs are:

2 Radeon HD 7970s in Xfire

Asrock Xtreme9 x79 mobo

16Gb RAM

i7-3280 CPU

I am running 3 27" screens at 5760x1080 resolution.

Temp is about 71 degrees C when this screenshot was taken.

I didnt have this problem on the single 6970 I was running priorto installing these.

 

What is this being caused by?

Could be a game bug, driver bug, faulty graphics memory, unstable overclock, etc.

Since you didn't provide very much in the way of detail, that's about as precise as anyone can guess.

All stock clock settings.

all drivers up to date.

the game has no issues with my old HD 6970. 

I am unsure of what else I can say.

It doesn't cause any crashes. There is no log to show. It just freaks out on some objects. Sometimes I can open the graphics settings, change something to another setting, doesn't really matter which, and everything will go back to normal. Is this a sign of faulty graphics memory?

What usually causes a tearing of moving objects like that?

 

edit: it does seem to only do it when it has been played for a while.

If it only happens after a while, it could be that one of the cards has flaky memory only at relatively high temperatures.  Not high enough to justify a fault, mind you.

You'll want to try each card individually to see if you can reproduce the problem.  Then RMA the card that fails, if that turns out to be the case.
