In CS6, when I transform a region by stretching it, it becomes full of multi-color noise for the region that was stretched. Only the region stretched has the noise. I did it several times and the same thing happened. I then took the same file and opened in CS5 and it worked great as before. I have had to go back to using CS5

OK, that doesn't sound right - but you're leaving out a lot of details.

How are you "stretching" the region?
What color mode are you using for the document that shows these artifacts?
What bit depth?

Does the noise go away if you zoom in to 100%?

Could you provide screenshots, or a video using Jing for us to have a look at regarding the noise you're seeing?

You'll also want to make sure you have the latest video card driver installed via the card manufacturer's website as well.

I am stretching the region by selecting a chunk with the marquee tool, then hitting Apple+T to transform then dragging one of the handles. The noise is visible although subtle zoomed out but at 100% its terrible and obnoxious. It ruins the photo. The noise is clearly only in the section that was stretched. I am using an Apple Mac Pro with its built in graphics driver. I did the exact same operation on the exact same file in CS5 and it did not have this problem. I will upload screenshots later. I believe its 8 bit AdobeRGB.
