i think i made my final decision:
i'm gonna RMA it, and if they don't give me a unlockable to 6970 OR a 6970 then i'm going to have them return it to me and just buy a $60 aftermarket cooler i guess. the 2-fan arctic cooling one that's compatable with 6950.
do VGA air coolers fit non-ref? can anyone confirm this?
someone mentioned that i could just sell it and upgrade to 7950 but i have two of these bad boys and i'd rather just stick with it for a couple more years seeing that i can easily max out games, i should have at least 2-3 years with it on maxing out then another 1-2 with medium/high settings. i do not plan on getting 7000 series at all...

Sorry didn't realize you had 2, the 6950's were made for xfire IMO and are awesome, no need for an upgrade yet.. Good luck to you sir

Does anybody know when companies will start offering 7950's to replace 6950's?

EDIT: I have a gigabyte HD 6950 that i think came with 3 years of warranty and now has 2 left
