I just realized after seeing these posts that I'm at 6 months on my first 6950 with unlocked shaders. I never did the 6970 flash though. Only a month or so on watercooling too. Too bad the reference cards are finally drying up. I picked up a reference HIS card a few weeks ago. It's good that people are exploring which cards can unlock and which can't. There should be some sort of spreadsheet in this thread with which can and which cannot of the aftermarket cards.

Hi. Welcome. Nice card you purchased. You do not have to unlock the shaders again. Once unlocked they will stay that way (unless he put them back, check with GPU-Z. If it says you have 1536 shaders then it's still unlocked).

You can easily lower the temp of your card. You can get Afterburner or Sapphire's TriXX Tweak utility to change the temp vs fan speed ramp so your fan will run a little faster but it will reduce the temp of the card. I am using Afterburner on both my 6950 and 6970. However, 45-50c is not very warm for these cards.

There is a list on the bottom of this page:

However, it's not a completely comprehensive list.

Im thinking of picking up 2 6970 MSI Lightnings. I have a couple of questions for you guys:

Do I have enough Juice with my PSU.

I have 2 PCIE x16 slots on my Mobo but I believe I have read these cards take up two slots each. Do you think Im going to have enough room on teh Mobo to fully take advantage of these cards?

Any other possible issues you can see?

You're jerking us right? You have a Corsair 1000W psu and you're asking if you have enough juce for just two video cards? I assume we're talking about your sig rig?

Your HIS 4890 cards look almost exactly the same to me:

Unless you got a different iteration. Even my old HD4870s took two slots.



Be warned, if you get the new ASUS cards, they take up three slots.
