You have to set it to "I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it" exactly like it shows in the post you quoted

Wouldn't the easy way be to use radeon Bios editor (RBE) and simply edit one of the unlock-shader bioses? Make it an Asus bios, and set voltage to whatever you feel comfortable with when your card runs in 3d mode. Then flash your card with that bios. This way you can install smartdoctor, enable unofficial overclocking, then uninstall smartdoctor again. That enables the use of CCC to oveclock WAY higher than ever needed, and you keep powersaving modes etc, and do not have to use afterburner or any other software. Win win.. That's how i did it anyways, and it works perfectly even in a crossfire setup.

dude does it really work better that way? I am still playing around with oc the 6950>6970 setup but the memory will only be stable at 1375 anything after that and i get glitchy black flashes on my second lcd.

what speed do you have yours up too? right now I am runing 6970bios 925/1325 so far tested with furmark 34min @1280*1024 msaa=8x my fan at 55% 81c stable.[IMG] furmark_000002 by alicklee, on Flickr[/IMG]

http://3dmark.com/3dm11/744392 6950->6970 oc 925/1375 powerboost stable fan at 55%

i am really thinking of editing the bios and changing the the 6950 instead of using the 6970 because of the differents in memory timing/voltage

I've had problems with the results on my XFX . I've been using the 2.1 afterburner and have frankly had problems finding the correct settings . Just when I think I'm doing great testing it in Kombustor I go in game ( BFBC2) and I keep locking up/artifacting . Are there any XFX HD6950 owners that can give me insight on their settings that have worked consistently . I've tried for hours and hours but I'm nearly ready to give up . That's diappointing too as the reason I snapped up the card was for the flash upgrade . Any guidance would be much appreciated .
post #45 of 89
here are my results.

i used unlock shader and not unlock. remember I am running 2 19in lcd as well so score is a bit different.

asus 6950oc
all test are performance setting
the20% is the powerboost in ccc and the number after that is the voltage setting in smart doctor

I cant seem to get the memoryto go up but the core is nice with voltage boost in smart doctor

what do you guys think?

I like 6950-UNLOCK oc1000/1250+20%1.25 p5032 3dmarks and are using that as my default. seem stable for now.

ok up dated. I found the most stable oc with 6950 bios w/shader unlock was the stock 6970 speed. 880/1375+20%powerboost but didnt need voltage boost either.
best speed/preformence ratio imo I guess i wil stay with that for now. no point in trying to push 1ghz and cook the gpu/card

Hi all. Greetings from Chile.

I have already made the 6950 "shaders unclock" from 1408 to 1536 . But I wanted a little more performance.

Darookie that guide was awesome!. Before, my best Overclocking was 920/1375 with the 1.1v limitation.

Now... I´ve reached 1010/1400 with 1.3v (thanks to you). Of course Power Tune +20% was enabled

After running 3dMark 11 with those specs I got P6030 3DMarks

See ya!
