An unlock is far more risky than overclocking since we do not know the causes and effects in a long term use.
If the OP is willing to do an unlock he should also be ready to do the less risky and far more performance inducing alternative ...the overclock
People need to stop talking about a 6950 being more likely to unlock than others.
Every chip is able to unlock if it hasnÂ´t been laser cut
TWFIII has higher quality parts and specially modified hardware which enables it not only to overclock higher but also deliver more stable and higher quality performance.
Not to mention the cooling is by far superior.
Optimal cooling conditions are good exhaust capability for the case but even if you donÂ´t have it the TWFIII should still outperform the stock cooler by 17 degrees easily
