XFX HD6950 1GB Shader unlocked overclocking potential?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Basically what the title says. What do think is a realistic overclocking potential for this card on stock voltage?

My specs are below and GPU at idle is at 47c atm, but for BF3, never gets above 75c.

TIA.

I thought shader unlocks only worked on the 2GB 6950's but ah well.

Realistically you may get 6970 clocks on stock voltage if not more, what are the stock clocks ?

It's never really found that Memory over clocks yield distinct performance improvements try for around 1300Mhz- 1350Mhz.

which XFX card do you have? the model #. which guide did you follow?

so by the GPU-Z picture, i take it you were able to unlock all your shaders?
