OB 6950's Question's

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Now I know the risks of ordering an OB, and i know it's a chance no matter what.
But out of curiosity, how many people that got the OB 6950's last week or this week are experiencing problem's?
Also, if I do get a bad card (bought the OB @ newegg) what's the best plan of action?
Do I try and RMA it through MSI, or should I just count my losses and send it back to newegg and get a refund?

Thanks.

*edit* I'm worried that if I order RMA through MSI they'll give me a card that doesn't unlock, which TBH is the only reason I decided to grab one of these in the first place.

I think most reference cards unlock and what you wanna do is get your BIOS and use the unlock mod from TPU so you unlock the shaders but keep 6950 RAM Timings and such and then you can just overclock it.
