Worked for me when my OC's wouldn't apply.
I tried that also and it's still the same, in Kombuster the voltage is still set at 1.100 using Powercolor's BIOS.

Then try using only 1 card, set the voltage to 1.25v-1.3v, set core clock to ~950-1000MHz, and see if it crashes or not, with a game or a different benchmark.
Crash = overvolt didn't work
Works = overvolt success

EDIT: If you're implying that the overvolt is not applying, and always stays at 1.1v in MSI AB, then i don't know what the problem is.

Also, you need to set the EULA for the OC's to work.

I haven't tried one card at a time but I don't think that's the problem either though.

I've also already set the EULA and Overclocking mode to "2", I might try what someone said and use MSI's bios.

Have you enabled voltage overclocking in the settings?

Yes I did.

Also, I tried using MSI's BIOS and the voltage still isn't changing when I hit Apply.

Quick update:

I flashed to the 6970 bios to give it a shot and the voltage is set to 1.175 by default. Now when I try to increase the voltage in MSI Afterburner..... it's the same result! I can't! Now this time it's stuck at 1.175, and YES I am unlocking the voltage setting in the "Settings" screen.

I'm beginning to pull my hair out now about this. I don't understand why this isn't working. Are Powercolor 6950s unable to adjust voltage?
