MSI 6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC Once Sharders Unlocked

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok guys i have a question

I got my lovely MSI 6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition on Friday, got home and saved the bios and flashed it with the bios that MSI supplied to unlock the extra shaders.

Now i wanna OC my card a bit more. Can get it to about 930/940 on the core but its lank unstable.

So i need to start playing with voltage. How would i do this as the voltage tweak in MSI AB is lockled. I have tried the usual methods to unlock (Editing the config file) but unfortunately to no avail.

If someone could help me that would be awesome! Gonna be getting another one in December so wanna work out all the kinks now!

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried checking Unlock Voltage Control in the settings?

I dont think you might be able to OC it that much with a flashed 6950, just be happy with a milder OC and an unlocked 6970.

I have the same card, are you using the 2.2.0 beta MSI AB? I'm on Beta 8, but make sure to use beta version of Afterburner. I can put my voltage at any level I want, which could be a bad thing. Anyway I've gotten to 940 core with a 1.2v OC and 980 at 1.275v but that's just for benchmarking. I'm happy at 900/1375 on 1.150v

You need to change the Voltage GPU setting in Afterburner from the default 1100mv option to the 1150mv option. That will allow you to really be able to change voltages
