MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III Unlockability

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm building a new rig really soon and I'm planning on going with some variation of the 6950. Right now I'm looking at the MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III but I'm concerned if I will be able to unlock the shaders and OC it. I've read a lot of conflicting posts on this and from what I can see is that you can unlock the shaders as long as the gpu is laser cut and it's up to chance. Is this still worth going for or would it be a better idea to just go for a reference 6950?
