It's insane. And noisy as ****.
The mod ups the voltage. If you don't want to water cool, you'll be better off doing the shader unlock only. Then if you feel like you need more performance, you can see what kind of clocks you can hit on stock 6950 voltage.
FYI I had my MSI card running 6970 bios and healthy overclock(950), but when I added the asus card and tried to match, I had too much heat, instability, crashes, etc. I don;t want to invest in watercooling so I'm running shader unlocks only. It's fast enough for me, and it's cool and quiet.
