Flickering squares in games on a 7950 Vapor-X

I'm getting these flickering squares in games, intermittently. The 7950 Vapor-X I have is barely a week old. There are a host of games I've tried, BF3, Crysis 2, Crysis 3 beta, The Witcher 2, The Walking Dead, Skyrim, Dark Souls which do not get these flickering squares.

Metro 2033, Dishonored, Far Cry 3 and Sleeping Dogs are the ones that get it.

I'm currently using the 13.2 beta drivers, but this issue was there in 13.1 too.

Here are my system specs: 2500k at stock settings, Asus P8Z77-MPro motherboard, 4gb ddr3 ram. I play at a resolution of 1920x1080@60Hz.

The power supply is Corsair TX650V2, I'm using two 6+2pin connectors for the gpu. The gpu is the Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X which I've been using with the Boost switch on.

The temperatures stay below 27C at idle and below 45C at max load. VRM temps also stay below 50C.

This is the first gpu purchase I've made, and the squares are freaking me out because I fear that they're occurring because of a malfunctioning card. Any help would be much appreciated. I've attached screenshots from the affected games.

is it a dead pixel that only shows up during games possibly maybe your monitor does this happen only when you play games

Like I said, it doesn't happen in all games.
