    LOL :roll:

    True

    It can be hard to decipher whether or not someone is joking on the interwebs.:(

    I agree with that, besides a bit fewer shaders and lower clock speeds on the 6950, they're not very different cards.

    6950 flash had mixed results . Advice ?

    After moving from XP# to 7 Pro I was able to flash my XFX HD6950. After a minute or 2 at stock speeds artifacting would begin ending in possibly distortion or maybe even the desktop sliding 2/3 to the right . Reduced clocks didn't seem to help . Current rig X38 Maximus Formula/Q9550/4gb OCZ Reaper/40gb SSD/2 x 500Seagate 7200.11/2 x seagate 7200.12 /xfi xtremegamer audio .I discovered these flaws using Kombustor . Any suggestions? And how is it possible to push gpu and hi perf memory clocks over thr limits 840/1250 clocks . I've seen it done elsewhere (OCC) but I cannot find a method can someone please provide some direction . I'm thinking of pushing the card in this fashion rather than the flash . Thank You :respect:
