If that has been my only issue should the card run fine with the 6970 flash?
6950 might artifact on 6970 bios at 6970 clocks. Id just flash it and first test the card at 6950 clocks. Test it rigorously with games like metro 2033 maxed out, furmark alone will not indicate perfect stability. Just play all your games for some time that are quite stressing without VSYNC.
If it does not fail, ramp it up to stock 6970 clocks and repeat the process. If no artifacts or problems, OC it beyond.
Make sure to keep an eye for temperatures, just set the fan to 50% when testing to be safe.
Reinstall the driver once you flash it with 6970 BIOS. Use driver sweeper to remove all driver traces left behind by the uninstaller before installing drivers.
