Unlocked the shaders or unlocked it to a 6970?

Mine run at 950/1425 usually. I find that bumping the ram to 1450 can give me a problem on one card since I have yet to increase the voltage.

do small amounts and run a stress test, i know msi has a small utility called, "MSI Kombustor" it scans for artifacts, not all the 6950/6970's overclock the same.. try 910/1380 to start, see what happens then if all is ok, try another increase. Happy Overclocking
