do all LOCKED 6950 2GB OC about the same-just luck of the draw

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
When I CF, I want a 6950 with a powerful dual fan cooler

so MSI has 3 with dual fans, XFX has 2, powercolor has 2, sapphire and ASUS have 1

Up until now I was thinking the MSI TF III, but now sapphire has a dual fan 6950 that comes with Dirt3 and is $30 cheaper(and my current sapphire OCs great)

so aside from any changes they might have made to the other components....do some companies pay a little more for GPUs and VRAM that are from better batches of silicon...that type of thing

or is it basically just random how they OC

They should all overclock the same, except for teh cherry picked custom boards... hmm but I don't think there's many 6950s, except like the Powercolor 6950 PCS++ and the TF3. In 6970 you have cards like the DCII, TF3, and Lightning. The 6950 TF2 is just a referenced revised pcb like the rest, nothing special save the fan.
