6950 flashed no OC in Catalyst

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Heya fellas,

I have had these two cards unlocked for a while had catalyst giving me a huge OC margin. Cards are AWESOME. However I have just realised after having some issues in bf2 that after installing 11.6 I dont have the OC headroom in catalyst any more? Weird huh?

I have the unlocked shaders in GPU-Z. Just cant OC over 840 in catalyst.
Do i need a "cracked" version of catalyst or soething? I'm pretty sure it just showed up in catalyst before. Anyways all help much appreciated as usual.

If you just have unlocked shaders then the card will have it's limits in catalyst locked at 840 etc. You can either do the racerx mod or use afterburner to bypass the catalyst limit. I prefer the racerx mod to AB anyday.

Yeah I only unlocked the shaders but i had the options in catalyst before. the ability to clock over 1000 core etc.... same for the memory. I wonder if i have to reflash the card again? anyways would love some feed back.

That's impossible with a stock system as Catalyst defaults are 840 for 6950s and 950 for 6970s. The only way to bypass Catalysts limits within Catalyst is either modding the bios or the racerx registry mod.

Ofc the bios is modded, how do you think i only unlocked the shaders?. what i'm saying is that when i went to 11.6 it went back to default catalyst. As in i cant go over 840 or something stupid. I need a hand to get it back the way it was. It's looking more and more like i need to flash again.....weak.

EDIT: Hey TSM, I just read one of your other posts where you link to exactly what will fix my issue Thanks man.
