Made an account just to respond to this, usually I just lurk. I am having this EXACT same problem. The tearing goes away if you disable Chrome's pepflashplayer Flash plugin via "Chrome://plugins" (for me at least), but the problem I have when I do that is that every video I open in a new tab is just a blank black box with audio. 

 

I have tried:
Disabling both Chrome's pepflashplayer and external Flash - Nothing
Disabling/Re-enabling hardware acceleration - Nothing
Updating Graphics Drivers - Nothing
Clearing Cache/cookies - Nothing
Re-installing Chrome - Worked, temporarily.

According to some threads on support forums, Google rolled out an update to Chrome that was unstable and was supposed to stay on the Beta channel. I'm currently on version 32.0.1700.76 m. When I re-installed Chrome, the version had been reverted to 32.0.1700.63 m, which I can only assume was a stable version. But Google had automatically updated to the most recent version a day later.

Unfortunately no, it seems the problem only arose when they released the update with the new "Metro" scroll bars.
