Best 6970 Version

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Is this the best version of the 6970?

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=7073911

Is it unlockable, able to be overclocked, fits a water block?

I just received a MSI Twin Frozr 6950 only to realize that apparently you can't unlock them now an you can't fit a water block on them.

You can't unlock 6970's to anything.

You will be able to overclock it and buy a waterblock for it, but i don't see why you want to replace your 6950 so badly, if you overclock that it will be on par with the performance of a stock 6970. Unlocking is not so big a deal as it would seem, it yields a mere 2-3% performance increase, its certainly not worth making a fuss about.

I understand that. I can't put a water block on the 6950 since its not a reference card.

Everything i've looked at says that it has to be a 6950 reference card and that the twin frozr III is not.

I love my 3x visiontek 6970's... but I wouldn't say they're best.

Wait, 6970? Then get the 6970 lighting. Or flash it to 6990 bios!
