Never seen it before myself.

I'll let the others go over what they think is wrong or the root cause.

Fwiw, I don't think its heat related because it would affect the entire scene, not just one specific portion as appears to be the case.

I only get it when changing resolutions while in-game. Restarting the game fixes it for me.

sometimes restarting my pc or the game fixes it. And no i seriously doubt, like alpha and sazar, that it is heat related, because im pretty sure i had this on css with my 5200fx.d'oh, lol, kind hard to remember but i think i remembered a checker crate leaning against a wall. Most likely just a source bug... any other opinions or facts etc. are welcome.

When I first saw this I was thinking that it was due to an overheat issue, but it only took me about a half a second to realize that it wasn't. I tinker with software all the time so to me this is a no brainer.

I am 100% without a doubt certain that it is entirely due to source not properly loading the four textures that the reflective surfaces depend on. You get the exact same familiar default checkerboard texture.

Does a game cache file validation make any sense for this problem or nah, nope?

It would *make sense*, but it doesn't fix the problem. It is due to some kind of error while loading the map.
