Hello everybody. New here. I decided to join as most of the useful 6950 info I have came from either here or techpowerup. I'm looking to buy 2 MSI reference 6950s in the very near future, and of course I am going to want to unlock shaders and OC. But even after reading about these cards for a couple weeks, I'm still not sure what the best method is. The most informative thread I have found is this one. I like that method, as using MSI afterburner would allow me to have dynamic control over clocks (beyond what CCC allows), fan speed, and voltage, which I like a lot. I have heard, however, that using afterburner conflicts with CCC's powertune, but I don't understand how. Does it disable it completely, or does it just keep it locked at 0%? I'm mostly worried about whether a conflict with powertune could cause some kind of problem that could damage the card when it is OCed and has shaders unlocked.
